Looks great. I think this is the first Diva I've seen finished and modeled here. Thanks for the post.
Are you happy with the fit and comfort? It looks like a good color combination that goes with a lot of different colors. Were the colors true to the web sites color on your monitor?

Very nice! Thanks for showing us!

Thank you very much!
I think the colours appear pretty much as they are.
I'm very pleased with the result. I washed it gently with hair shampoo, and it got really soft and nice.
I'm sure it will be used. :)

It looks fabulous. Well done, you! Do you know what the original yarn amounts were? I have the pattern and want to knit it but in a different colourway from the ones Hanne has come up with. The original yarn is no longer available (dumb or what!)

I love this sweater. My sister wants one in the black-and-cream colorway, and seeing it modeled allows me to picture how it would look on her. Thanks and excellent work!

Rikke said...

Thank you everyone!
I have used 75 g green and 325 g blue.
That's about 1½ skein of the green and 6½ skein of the blue.

Rikke - thanks for the yarn amounts. Which size did you do it in?
