We were thrilled to get our package from Norway! The sweater is a wool/mohair blend, knit by Bente. She calls her design "Marius." I'm curious about the origin of the name. We road tested the sweater immediately, on a snowy day last week. I can report that I love receiving knits made by others. It's so nice, and happens rarely in a knitter's world, I think. Thanks again to Bente for the marvelous idea to swap.
