Shetland Fern

I don't like to brag or show off (ok, maybe just a little). Anyway, I am very very pleased with how this sweater turned out:

Pattern: Shetland Fern by Jennifer Lindsay, from The Natural Knitter (what a gem of a book!)

Yarn: Yarns International Shetland 2000 in the same natural shades as the pattern. This yarn is not dyed, but comes directly from sheep of various colors! Check out the yarn and other awesome patterns here.

Needles: size 3 and size 2.5, not because they were specified in the pattern but because I had a lot of them in various lengths. Somehow, magically, the gauge worked out allright.

Love, love, love it. Words escape me at the moment. Let me just say that the pattern is fantastic and very well written. Here is a very pleased me:
