DaCapo Finished!


Hello everyone. After three years of knitting my DaCapo, I have finally finished. Its been a journey, albeit, one with a satisfying ending. I just bought a Jamieson and Smith colour card and am debating a second sweater. I feel like a pro now.
Here is the story of my finish.

Congratulations - both on your achievement and on your persistence over the years. It takes courage to keep on going back until you've finished it. And it looks great. Well done, you!

Congratulations! What a journey you've been on over three years. Wear it proudly!

Lovely! I think the colours are great too; there is no way I would have thought about putting them together1!

Congrats! It looks great on - and thanks for modeling. It's always wonderful to see it on a real human rather than a pole.

It's gorgeous! I knit a DeCapo a few years ago in the greens and I love it. I must say, your color choice is spectacular.

Hi

I saw a Decapo knit in Hemp last year (I think Hanne was testing it out). It has a lovely shimmer on it,seems quite rough to knit with but when it is washed it is lovely with a fantastic drape. So that will be one of my projects...eventually!!!!

Great job! I've been thinking about getting a Hanne Falkenberg kit. However, it scares me when you mentioned it took three years to finish.
