Icelandic jumper pattern

What is about winter evenings that draw me to knitting? When the heating goes off in the sewing room I settle in the sitting room with a log fire, chocolate, crossword and at the moment some very warm knitting. Daughter who is living in Norway has asked me to knit a jumper from a lovely Norwegian design company called Valley Knits. You can find them on Raveley, the knitting pattern site. The jumpers are photographed on snow, with husky dogs and reindeer fur and they look amazing. I do hope mine will look amazing too, but I haven't  got to the difficut bit yet! Yes, that is the circular yoke with traditional patterns mixed with paw prints.... I suspect there will be much undoing, some grumpiness and hopefully triumphant photos when I get it right!
Here it is so far, no husky dog here to style the photo though....That may come when I finish it and post it to Norway!

Design by Valley Knits, norway
The sleeves come next, then hopefully it will all join up to make the yoke stitches, I  really hope it does!! 
Carrying on knitting,
Kind regards,
