fo: rowan wallis



now i know why the duke of windsor abdicated the throne. wallis from rowan 38 definitely lives up to her irresistible namesake. destined to become my fave new sweater! i think i was in love from the moment i pulled it over my head. knit of rowan kid classic in a beautiful aubergine. the lace pattern was easy to memorize. in fact, this is the first lace project in which i was actually able to knit and talk at the same time. not to mention, drink wine.

a few pattern notes: the pattern called for 7 skeins for the small size. i adjusted the pattern slightly in length. had i made it exactly to specs, i would surely have run out of yarn.

p.s. to jason: don't worry...i cast on for your sweater...more on that to come soon.
