Hey!  This is the first sweater I've made (my... sixth?) that I don't instantly hate!  Check it out:

It is made of Rowan summer tweed (sweet stuff, I've got four skeins of orange as well).  The pattern is from Rebecca, No. 17, pattern #14.  It calls for a viscose/cotton/linen yarn, and this is a silk/cotton yarn - so it's denser, and I needed 4 skeins rather than the 3 the pattern specifies.

Even so, I ran out of yarn, so that the collar is only half the size it should be.  More of a mock turtle than a cowl...  Undecided

Nothing about it to hate!  Smiley
Very nice. I think the collar is nice, it doesn't look like a "short of yarn" version.

As the pic was loading the first thing that I though was that I liked the collar! The color's great too!  Grin
