Fibonacci Birthday Sweater

Originally uploaded by Strickanfall.
The birthday boy in the birthday sweater. I am really happy with how this turned out, really like the Fibonacci striping, and I also like the different sleeves. And it was great to create something really cute from stash yarn.

Geburtstagskind und Geburtstagspulli. Ich find, die Streifen, und ueberhaupt der ganze Pulli sind echt schoen geworden. Und er sieht todschick aus darin heute, sogar mit passenden Sandalen... Ausserdem war es echt befriedigend etwas echt schoenes aus uebrigem Garn zu machen.

Encore une annee, et encore un pull d'anniversaire, en coton, cette fois-ci (et il semble plaire... il le porte, au moins aujourd'hui... on verra). Je suis tres contente de ce pull, des rayures, du fait d'avoir utilise des restes de laine pour qqc de joli.

Fibonacci Sweater
Yarn: ggH elastico and Drops Safran
Color: navy, green, blue, red
Needles: 3.5 mm Addi bamboo circs
Pattern: my own for the colors... basic construction is based on Breton by Alice Starmore
Modifications: well: gauge, colors
Knitting fun: I really really liked the fact that this sweater is completely finished once off the needles. Pure genius construction! I did not like to weave in the zillion ends of stripes, even with all the carrying up on the side that I did...
Techniques learnt: sweater construction a la fishing gansey, underarm gussets
