How many hours a day do you knit? I can't believe you finished such a gorgeous garment in such a short amount of time. Have you made any others?

I´ve made two other Mermaids. The body of the second Mermaid, I finished in 1½ week.

Whenever I have 5 minutes I knit. I allwas have my knitwear (what is a work in progress called ind english?) with me. I knit when I visit my old dad, I knit during lunchbreak, I knit in the bus, I knit in the evening. So I guess all together I knit 3-4 hours a day.

I think your colors are the prettiest ever. I am very impresed with your speed as well. Job well done. It has taken me forever to knit 5/8 of Ballerina. It will be worth it in the end, but I am way too slow.

That is absolutely gorgeous - I would choose the same colors!

Me, I'm 2 years into my DaCapo, but on the last 1/4 of the sweater.

At least these designs are timeless and you can always wear them no matter how long it takes to finish them.
