It only took 9 x 50g balls of Noro Silk Garden for this large size, long sleeve sweater, knit by Inger.  It will have buttons added for enhancement. Inger always seems to get the right yarn for the right job.  She said she played with the yarn a bit to get the colours where she wanted.  Also, she did the front and back separately (instead of circular-ly) because 1:  She is so smart and 2: the colours would have been smaller stripes if she’d knit it circular-ly. Clever Inger.
