Salina

I finally got up early enough to wrangle Brad into a Salina photo shoot before he left for work hence the headless shots. It was early people!!



My cami is pulled down way too low, I really need a new stylist for these early morning shoots...




I am completely in love with this sweater...I would wear it everyday if it weren't suddenly 18 degrees celsius. Oh Spring, why couldn't you wait just one more week...?

Project Specs
Pattern: Salina from Rowan Vintage Knits (size Medium).
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed - used exactly 6 balls just like the pattern promised.
Needles: The recommended 31/4 and 33/4.
Comments: Love the yarn, love the pattern, love the sweater! I got a little confused sewing the cuffs on but in the end they came out perfectly fine.

Beautiful!! I think it looks kinda cute with the cami poking out of the bottom, but maybe I need to be slapped with a fashion sense, I don't know. *lol*

Gorgeous! Congratulations. And don't worry--it may feel springish, but there's plenty of time for it to change its mind yet. I'll bet you get at least one wear out of Salina this month!

Wow, this turned out so beautiful, you did an amazing job with it - and it suits you perfectly! Now, I could send you some colder weather over so that you could wear it - it's snowing here, duh :(

Oh she is gorgeous. I love the colour, I love the cut and I definately want one too. What a good excuse to buy more felted tweed!!

That's a FABULOUS sweater! Fits you perfectly. I love that color too - one of my favorites.

Impressed by all the socks. Also, my deepest sympathy regarding the dog's work. I have a fear one day a similar post will appear on my blog!

Finally, I've got the same dilemma regarding some wool. Big Sack has been speaking to me for a while since it seems to fit my lounge-around personality.
