My own knitting in progress

I'm working on another viking sweater by Elsebeth Lavold, my third one. It's called Frode, from her first viking design book. A drop shoulder pull over, very straight forward, and no design on the sleeves. As of last night, I'm almost done with the back. The large knot in the middle is called St. John's cross, it's a pre-Christian symbol of happiness. The serpentine braids on the sides are a lot of fun to knit. And a picture of the pattern. The pattern is purple in the book, and I'm using Patons Classic Wool in burgundy. My first large project in this yarn, love it love it love it!

This is so beautiful. I just started my first Elsebeth Lavold pattern the past week (Liv). It took me about four attempts to figure out the charts, but all seems to be going smoothly now. Yours are truly inspiring.
