  • it is great. there is something monkish about the hood. in the best of ways. and the wool and the colours are surely beautiful. and the knitting looks so lovely and defined.

  • Wonderful Job. I am working on a child tomten jacket. I would like to make the slender woman's version. Trying to get the gauge right. Thanks for sharing an inspiration to me
