Glittertind, not to be confused with Dale of Norway's Glittertind. That came later.
Norsk Strikk: Fra Tradisjon Til Mote. Editor Kari Hestnes, 1992.
The cover model is called Lillehammer, also not to be confused with the Dale of Norway Lillehammer from 1994. All the sweaters in this book are either from, or inspired by, a place. Most are sort of traditional.
This is Glittertind:
Norway's second highest mountain. From this page which makes me all homesick.
Hard not to like a mountain with the word "glitter" in the name. Beats Galdhøpiggen, Norway's highest mountain.
Progress so far:
Well, ok, I have only done about four-five rounds, this sleeve was already underway.
Steps to finish:
- Knit second sleeve.
- Reknit first sleeve.
- Cut the sleeve openings wider.
- Reknit the ribbing. It's too tight because I liked the way the stiches looked when knit tightly. I knew better.
- Knit the neckline.
- After attaching the sleeves, check the fit and possibly lengthen the body.(!) Does this seem like a lost cause? If I could redo the body, I would. It's way oversized, like in the 90's when we were all getting the large and extra-large sweaters (it wasn't just the 80's.)
- Graft on the ribbing.
