No, I don't want to call spring as this won't work anyway. But as this sweater has short sleeves I am not going to wear it in winter, that's for sure. I am so happy that it is finally finished as somehow there was always something else to do instead of finishing this object. I have to remember that this yarn gets smaller after washing. When knitting Holst supersoft has a sort of rustic feel but after washing it is really soft. I put some hot water (40 degrees C) with some washing up liquid in a bucket and let the sweater soak for a while. Then I rinsed it and let it dry lying flat. Perfect! I made some modifications to the pattern as I did not change the pattern on the sleeves and sewed the buttons directly on. I made a garter stitch border on the sides (48 stitches and 7 rows for size S).
