Yarn: Alize Lanagold Solids appr. 340 g green, 30 g yellow
Needle: 3.5 mm rib, 4 mm body

Definitely one of my most favourite winter cardigans ever, I'm very happy how it turned. I blogged about the modifications I've made. About the sleeves - I decided to unravel some 15 rows before the armscye and to make the additional two increases which I had skipped, thinking that 48 stitches would give me enough width. This and some blocking settled the issue with the narrow sleeves and they feel quite comfortable now.

The winter is back - it snowed heavily last night and today the city is covered in white. The snowy park provided a nice scene for the session but added a bit too much contrast to the pictures and the texture of the knitting is not quite clearly visible in most of them. But I've posted so many pictures that I'm sure you get the idea :)

A jay bird in the tree above us was causing snow to fall on the camera:)

 Lots of great tit birds (Parus major) - the bird symbol of Sofia,
perched only a yard away from us
