beach sweater part two

wish i could post more constant.....
for today i wanted to show a little pic of the newest member 
of my beach collection ;)
think i am in a stripy mood these days (hahaha)

nearly same construction as for on the beach
top down, contiguous set-in sleeves, seamless and sooooo comfy
only need to clear some sentences to get the pattern ready
for testing (sometimes it's unbelievable hard to write in
correct english......)
stay tuned

now the time has come to show this beauty i testknitted
for Joji in early march
was my first real fair-isle project
and it was a hard experience for me - slow going (hahaha)
i'm not used to knit slow....
had to swatch several times to achieve correct gauge 
with the yarn i had in my mind
but all in one it's one of the cutest sweaters i made

pattern. umbrellas by Joji Locatelli
also available as a part of her april showers collection
yarn. merino/acrylic (90/10) sockyarn weight from unlabled cone

hope to find some more time to post next weekend...
will be the first weekend at home (not at work) of the last 4 weeks
