Very happy with this sweater, it's rugged but feminine and even though the yarn was rough before washing, it felt soft and lovely after (not cashmere soft or anything, but just nice). I'm a big fan of texture in my knitting now, and bobbles have inspired me to make my first design, but that's not finished yet. Here are some pictures of the sweater, tell me what you think!

Details:


Shot with dunes in the background (I love the dunes):


Pattern is demi from the book Rowan Vintage Knits, by Kim Hargreaves.
Yarn is Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran in Lewis Gray.

Thanks for looking!

Wow!  That is awesome!  I just started knitting, and thus far I have only managed to make a pair of fingerless mittens.  How long did it take you to make?

Thankyouthankyou, I'm glad you like it too!

@stitch81: It took me about a month and I'm definitely not the quickest of knitters.
