Lopapeysa - Icelandic sweater finished

I finished my Lopapeysa just in time for the cold spell! It was a fun project. I really like the yarn Alafoss Lopi. It has a very genuine feel and it is easy to knit with.
I have read that many people find the yarn a bit itchy, but after washing the sweater I think that it is very nice. After wearing it for a week I am already contemplating knitting one more of these sweaters.
It is an easy knit. I planned the sweater in November and made some changes starting with omitting the borders and just keeping the yoke pattern. I also added some short rows at the back for a better fit, and made the neck a bit more narrow and higher.
Very functional.
