Summer Gem

Hi Knitters,
Here is a quick little knit you might enjoy. I have written before about Rowan's Summer Tweed. I love the yarn and the color selection is fantastic. It is a crunchy yarn that softens as you knit it and then even more as you wear it. I love the laced neck opening, the 3/4 length sleeves and the shape. I knit this on a size 8 needle.
Kim Hargreaves has a been a favorite designer of mine and of Rowan for many years. She designed this entire Summer Tweed Collection. There are some great sweaters in here including many tanks and cardigans. Anyway, check it out if you like quick knits with a fun yarn.
I looked through my old Vogue Knitting mags to see if I could find the original hound's tooth outfit from the last post, but I can't find this specific issue. I had fun browsing through all of those past issues from long ago anyway. I love to see what I dog-eared as potential projects or things I liked. When you are in that moment you can't imagine that something will go so out of style so quickly. If I ever run across that issue, I will be sure to share it with you.
Have a great day.
best, susie
