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.
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....
