Now we match

I've practically used up all my very blue Falk yarn that I had a drawer full of just a few months ago.
About three weeks ago I finished knitting "Sundog" for M. And a few days ago I pulled myself up by the ear and wove in the last ends and blocked it.
Now M has a new wool sweater that matches my Pioneer.

I'm very happy with it. It turned out great, and was also a super holiday project. The yoke is fun to knit and is well constructed, the whole thing is seamless and the sweater is designed to grow with the child.

The cuffs are turned up, and I knit extra length to the body, so I am pretty sure we'll at least get two seasons wear out of this.

While checking that I had not squirreled away even more blue Falk yarn I actually found yarn for and started another blue project. This time with added gray. More holiday knitting. This time it's a "how to avoid cabin fever"-project. And for me!
The blue Falk is as good as gone. When I finish up this latest project I'll have used up a whole drawerful of blue yarn this summer.
