Officially finished

Finally, here is Rosedale -- washed, blocked, seams sewn, and my little attempt at having marginally interesting photos.

I didn't think I'd look so small next to those daffodils.

And up close.

rosedale back
And the back. If I made this again, I don't think I'd put in the little rectangle in the back.

Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out. It fits nicely, it's warm but not overwhelming, and adds a lot of color to a sweater wardrobe that was previously dominated heavily by grey. I love the corrugated ribbing and the way the stripes go around the raglan sleeves -- and the colorblock is fun, too.

Now about that reading....

I followed you over from Livejournal, and I love the jacket! The colors are stunning, and the pictures are very well done. Although th daffodils do rather dwarf you :)

Nice. I love roseday - I have it on my list, however I have no idea when I will get to it.

Yours is quite lovely.
