I bought the Bohus
I was at "Myrorna" the Salvation army´s fleamarket last week and found a Bohus sweater. It´s the second time I found one and I still regret that I didn´t buy the first one. This one was highly overpriced as a lot of thing are at this shop. So I left without it but having thought about it and talked to people at the "Spede" class ( more on that later) I went back and when I looked at again the idea that I could frog the sweater and save the beautiful yoke and knit me a new sweater that will fit I bought it.
The sweater is very oddly shaped, snug at the neck but the yoke is beatiful. It has a went in the back and are buttoned with tree buttons
The angora blended yarn used for the yoke are so soft, the yarn used for the "white-ish" parts are in a strange off white gray shade.
The label is still there:
I will have to find a yarn for the bodyparts and My plan is to contact "Solsilke" who dye yarn to make kits for Bohus sweaters.
