Rotonda



After the heavy snow and arctic temperatures (-22C), yesterday we had a break from the cold and managed to take pictures of my latest finished sweater. While knitting it, it constantly reminded me of the St. George Rotunda and the Roman ruins next to it - probably my most favorite place in town, my secret garden. Hidden in the inner court between the Presidency and the Sheraton Hotel, the beautiful church is the oldest preserved building in Sofia, built at the beginning of the IV century, when Sofia (then Serdica) was part of the vast Roman empire. Behind the church are the ruins of the residency of the emperor Constantine the Great. I just had to photo shoot this sweater there!



Pattern: Rotonda (rotunda in Bulgarian)
Yarn: Alize Missisipi 2 skeins
Needle: 3 mm
Time to knit: seems eternity (I think, considering all the unraveling and re-knitting, I actually knitted this at least twice)









It's such fun to share your FO with other knitters! Check Tami's Amis FO Friday!
