I had to share the news with you. I have finished my Pearls jumper by Helga Isager and I am absolutely thrilled with the result. This was the jumper I did fall in love when I first visited Isager yarns stand at the trade show a few years ago and Helga was wearing it. I had a jumper envy straight away.... see the photo below..
The ongoing joke is that this was a reason I started stocking Isager yarns in the shop, just the way to get my hands on this... The truth is even Martin (my other half and absolutely no knitter) did point out that Isager yarns that year had the most interesting, exciting, different and most pleasure to speak with stand. But that is back than.
Now back to my jumper. It did take me a couple years to finally fulfil my dream. The most difficult part was to choose the colour as there are so many colours I love. The first was to choose Spinni yarn and than add Alpaca 1. Those of you who know me, will know I do not do brown and pink. Nothing wrong with it, but I just find it difficult to make myself to put it in the projects. Blue and green is normally my choice. However, I did settle for Red...I used Burned Red Alpaca 1 and bright red Spinni in colour 32 Red . Below I have put some pictures of my other colour considerations.
Yes it has taken its time, but I am so pleased with result! It is true Isager style with so much attention to detail, everything lines up. I love how the ribbing on the sleeves goes up to meet the lines of bobbles. Sorry, they are pearls! The fit is perfect and I cannot wait to show it off in the shop. The colour is gorgeous as my Burned Red Alpaca 1 has muted down the bright red Spinni in colour 32 Red .
Here are a couple of my other colour combinations I was contemplating:
1. Spinni 16 - Blue Green + Alpaca 1 colour 16 Marine Blue
2. Spinni 2s Light Grey + Alpaca 1 colour 1E0
