fo: rowan electra


i can hardly wait til fall. not only because it is a millionty degrees outside. but because i finally finished my rowan electra vest.


knit up entirely with rowan yarns: scottish tweed, felted tweed and kidsilk haze. it's actually a very easy fair isle pattern that is only time-consuming if you wait a month between each pattern rep as i did.

A perfect fall knit. Now hurry up cool weather!

Nice! The tweed gives it a great texture. I too can't wait until cooler weather, but I know I'll stop whining as soon as it gets too cold.

it looks great! but i certainly can wait until fall...it means i have to give up a certain place i adore.but i sure am glad to work on warm snuggy wool knits. maybe i'll have a go at that pattern.

Very nice Kate! You give me hope that someday I too will have the discipline to knit such a beautiful Rowan vest.

That is such a "Hurry up Autumn" project, I love it! It's gorgeous, good job!

Anything that gets fall here quicker is very good in my book. *sigh* Apple cider, woodsmoke, walking through crunchy leaves...it's gonna be great.

Oh tell me about it, Fall can not come soon enough for me. That vest is beautiful as are the colors.
