Q&A with Laurelk

Ydemark asked:
Love the lining and zipper. What a great idea.
Laurelk answered:
Thank you! I love having the liner. The first sweater I made I did not line it and I added the buttons. I love this one so much, that I ended up removing the buttons and added a zipper and lining to the first one.

Love the earth tones in this sweater. Reminds me of Autumn. I m not one to follow a pattern completely, usually loose my place, but i would probably just change the closure on this.

Sheila Zachariae asked:
Love your color choices!
Laurelk answered:
Thanks! I was inspired by a fellow craftsy member.
WowCarol asked:
Look how happy you are! I think lining Lopi is the best of both worlds. That is a great idea and I'm going to do that from now on! If you have been to Iceland you will know that the handknits there are frequently closed with zippers, so you are being authentic there. :) Well done!
Laurelk answered:
Thanks! I just went to Iceland last month and was able to see lots of Lopi sweaters! It was alot of fun, but I have to say, I like my sweater even more than the ones there because I made it and I love the pattern. Lining it was the best choice because I wear it all the time since the liner is super soft and the sweater is so warm!
