Overlynd by Melissa Schaschwary

Overlynd was a train project which I completed knitting in April, it took me 13 days to knit. It took me a lot longer to get around to sewing the bias binding onto the collar, but I finished that a couple of weeks ago and blocked it. I decided to forego the buttons because I felt the flowery ribbon was so pretty I didn't want to detract from it, so I just sewed the ribbon over the button holes I had already made. Of course there are no close ups of the ribbon, because it was so sunny at the weekend I was squinting in every close up picture!

The yarn was from Vietnam (the same as my blue sand cardigan), but I knit this jumper on a larger needle (5mm) which gave a much nicer fabric - less dense.
