Ok, so I changed my mind. Now that it's finished, I actually like it. I think that the hood has something to do with it, for some strange reason I love garments with hoods. And the buttons all around are also a nice touch, I think.
I'm still not convinced about this colorway, and I probably would choose something else if I'd do it again, but working with Noro is always a surprise and I'm very pleased with how the Silk Garden turned out, especially after washing. I put it in the washing machine, and it turned out incredibly soft and didn't stretch at all, which I was really afraid it would.
Pattern: Sparreholm, from Noro Revisited
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden, color 245 (6 skeins)
Needles: 5.5 mm
Notes: No changes whatsoever. It's a very straightforward pattern, although it contained a couple of errors. I'm a loose knitter, so even though I made the smallest size it's still a bit loose, especially because it's ribbing all around and would look better with more negative ease.
