At last, something finished--it's been a while! This is Magnolia, a sweater from Rowan's Vintage Style book. Original model here:
And my version:
As you can see, it's a basic pullover but one I'll probably wear often when the weather cools down. The original in the book was knitted in Kid Classic and Kidsilk Haze held together on US 9s. Mine was done with Cascade's Kid Seta (just like Kidsilk Haze but a little cheaper) and some yarn I got as a gift from my sister, probably from a farmer's market or fair or something. It was from Serendipity Farm in Suffolk, Va., and is 30% alpaca and 70% wool. I'm thrilled to use it because this yarn has been in my stash for ages. I really pondered what to do with it, because it's quite lightweight and airy but perhaps a little dull on its own. Anyway, I like how it turned out and it fits pretty well.
The only feature of interest is the collar with buttons. These are a grey shell that matches perfectly, but in this photo they look white. Oh well, they do look nice in real life!
I'm very into knitting of late and hope to have some more projects to show here soon. One of them has eight legs!
