Double FO - Alice Starmore Kinsale

First I finished this sweater last November and here is a picture we took in Beaumaris, Wales, during a trip in searching for puffins. (We didn't see any, just in case you were wondering.)



And here is a close up:



In the meantime, I realised it's too short - you know the famous question: 'does my bum look big in this?'. Well, the answer was undoubtfully 'Yes'.
...So I took it apart and added another repeat to the body.
This is more or less what happend to all my FOs - it's called 're-design' :). I am said to be restless.

I don't have a recent picture of the new sweater but you can imagine it being just a bit longer.

Yarn : Aurora 8 - so nice and soft, I would use it again and again and again...if I could afford it more than once per year :).

Pattern : Fishermen's Sweaters - Alice Starmore, see the original here.
Beautiful book and still available quite cheap.

lovely sweater. I found your Kinsale through Ravelry. I've had my eye on making this one and I was wondering what yarn to use. Did you have any problems with gauge? Does the yarn pill. I like the Karabella yarns quite a bit . . .
