My Favourite knit

Well its finally finished, I have been talking about it for over a year and its finally done.

Introudcing my new best friend Laika!

This is Ysolda pattern, i have barely taken this off since i finished it earlier this week.

Now i think its no secret that i struggled with this pattern, I think i was a bit too inexperienced when i started this to be honest, with the help of my friend Gwen at Baa Ram Ewe we finally figured it out. 

I have worked on it on and off for a year, it lay abandoned for many many months but i got in my head i wanted to wear it on the flight to our honeymoon so i trucked on it recently. 

I decided to do a single button band, as when i started it i weighed about 19pounds more (Yay) so i was worried it would be too big.
I choose to stick with red buttons so it didn't distract from all my hard work on the knitting lol

I nearly lost my mind doing the button band but i know its been worth it, its been a bumpy road but man i love this. I doubt i will make another mainly because it took so long and because i will never be taking this one off lol.

I used the hood the other day on a very very cold morning (4 degrees in August) and it was a big knit the hood but its really worth it.

So there you have it, its all ready for my honeymoon flight, which i leave for next monday! 

Right what can i get finished before then??
