Selfish knitting

Sometimes knitting should be selfish, right? I cannot possibly explain why on earth I knitted 2 warm sweaters in the middle of summer and also TWO sweaters in a row just for me. Usually it’s work with a little hint of family knitting. I went overboard buying tons of yarn at Lanade, my favorite supplier of DROPS yarns (which I adore, they have absolutely every yarn weight and fiber combination at a resonable price). So next sweater is the first sweater I knit for my hubby. It’s a raglan, too, knit with DROPS Lima in dark petrol/blue 65% wool, 35% alpaca. I took the measurements from a very well fitting jacket he has and I hope it will fit well.

Half Brioche Raglan in Drops Loves You 3 50% wool, 50% alpaca. Incredibly soft and light.
The patterns is selfmade following the instructions on top down raglan from here: http://www.raglanvonoben.de (german)

This is the Reverb by the wonderful Tanis Lavallee. The knitting process and the fit is a delight! I used 6 or 7 skeins of Drops alpaca.
