Fortunately the sleeves turned out nicely after the second blocking, boy, did I get quite a scare…! And I managed to find a nice zipper (eventhough it is black on the sides, I had hoped for dark blue or green, but no), and last but not least, I managed to sew it in by hand. Since sewing is not really my thing, this was quite an accomplishment
I don’t know what is happening with the daylight these days, it seems it is semi-dark when I get up in the morning, and then semi-dark when I return home late in the afternoon… Where did the light go? It is not that I don’t like fall, I truly do. And I love the colors… all shades of yellow, orange, red and brown. However, an unfortunate side-effect of fall is the lack of daylight for proper photos of knitting projects. This week I had to wait till the weekend before I found daylight time to take a few proper pictures of Nevis. The good thing about this though, it was a nice occasion to enjoy a nice hot cafe au lait in the park with my husband.
Here it is:

And from the back:
It is reported to be very warm and soft, and fits nicely under his warm waistcoat. (Of course we forgot the waistcoat at home because the weather was so nice, so unfortunately no pictures of Nevis under the waistcoat this time around)
Pattern: Nevis by Marie Wallin, Rowan 42
Yarn: Rowan Tapestry, Colorway: Moorland, Whirlpool & Rainbow
Modifications: I made the neckband a little shorter than the pattern called for, due to a specific request from the recipient. Also the length of the sleeves I made a bit shorter, because the sleeves in the pattern are really long, and eventhough long sleeves are nice, I think making them according to the pattern would be a bit too much.
