Finished my Eiffel!

Hello from Estonia! I finished my Eiffel some days ago and, ofcourse, I am very satisfied. I used Novita 7 Veljestä (used about 400 g). I have no idea is it consumer friendly yarn or not, but I think it is one of the most popular yarns in Estonia. Very warm also (well it is winter at last here).
I didn't like the ribbon I had bought for Eiffel and that is why I made black-white ribbon from the same yarn. Still thinking whether to use ribbon on sleeves on not. Also I will not block lace and 3K4P-Rib. It is more around the body this way and my figure likes it better :)

I love the way it looks! What weight & fiber make-up is the yarn that you used?

That looks amazing! I really like the yarn that you used. It's a nice alternative to the hemp.

Label of this yarn says: Made in Finland, 150 g = 300 m; 75% wool, 25 % polyamide, average for female sweater about 900 g and male sweater 1 kg (I knit for my husband and it took about 660 g - http://www.hot.ee/iseteg123/kampsun.jpg). I really recommend this yarn.

Your Eiffel is beautiful! I am going to knit mine in the same ivory color in Louet Euroflax. What a great idea to use yarn instead of ribbon. I have heard you have lovely yarns in Estonia.

It looks great unblocked! I like how it clings more and drapes less!
