WIP Wednesday - Swedish Elfe

I was away on vacation last week and got a lot of knitting done while I was gone, so after a delightful week in Stockholm I'm ready to show off my progress on my two active WIPs.

First the test-knit "Frost Flowers". I had a bit of a snag with this while away from the computer, so it hasn't come quite as far as I would have liked, but now that I'm back and have all of that sorted out I'm rearing to go again. The yarn I'm using is teetee Elegant, and I think the colour works very nicely with the pattern :)
A bit squished up as the needle is only 80cm. I need to get myself some longer ones!

Because of the snag I knew I had to bring something else with me to Stockholm if I wanted something to knit on the train ride there (5.5 hrs? I wanted something to knit!). I've been wanting to knit Elfe since I first saw it, and finally realized it would be the perfect use of my lovely Candy Skein Yummy Fingering. I was right :) It's a delight to knit and I find myself not wanting to put it down!
Just finished closing up the sleeves :)
