Jemima...finished

Knit in navy blue rowan kid classic 'nightly', my first successful sweater! Its tricky to photo a dark wool, so let me describe it to you...



it's wonderfully soft and warm, fits perfectly, boxy - which I wasn't expecting, but light and slightly loose - an easy fit. The button placket is strong and neat, although I've permanently seamed it on both sides, and will add some purely decorative buttons later, as well as a rowan label in the back. It might have taken me an awfully long time, but its an easy pattern for a beginner. I used 5mm needles and aran weight wool to keep the weave drapey.





One shot of the back...



This is what I was looking at...the moon over the back of the Royal Crescent.
