What materials did you use? I used Lettlopi from Iceland, that my daughter bought for me in Reykjavik and knitted on circular. The buttons and fastener at the neck are from Norway bought a long time ago when travelling through Norway from the UK to spend summer holiday in my motherland Sweden. It was lovely to finally have the right garment to use these buttons for.

What are you most proud of? I am happy to have finally learnt to steek and like the finished look. However, I don't know what I was thinking, but I actually knitted this in too small a size. I still like it though and have used it a lot, even though it's a bit tight around the upper arms and neck.

Very nice work and wonderful tale of the buttons.
