Autumn Symphony Knitted by Tone Cecilie Nystrøm

2014-04-22_19.21.45_medium2Tone Cecilie Nystrøm, aka ToneCecilie on Ravelry, test knitted this gorgeous version of my Autumn Symphony Jacket with the wrap, and a self composed hat in March. These fabulous photos are taken by her daughter, Sara aged 12. I was taken back by her bold combination of colors; Melange clear apple green and melange purple in the stunning Ask-Hifa 2. Tone Cecilie chose size M, and did not do any alterations to it. She is a great test knitter since she can easily spot any mathematical errors straight away, and improved the pattern together, with the other test knitters. The lace pattern, called Chinese Lace, is one of those that are hard to learn by heart even for knitters who usually memorize patterns instantly, just as Tone Cecilie does. I was so fortunate to meet her in person last month when she attended two of my workshops for Strikk og Drikk/Knit and Drink in Stavanger, on the South-West coast of Norway, and study her jacket in detail. Thank you, Tone Cecilie!
