View Full Version : FO: Rowan Martha Cardi

06-01-2007, 02:27 AM
This is my latest FO, Martha from Rowan magazine #37. The yarn is Lane Borgosesia fingering weight wool. I started it in January, but not seeing a lot of progress (the gauge is 34 sts and 46 rows to four inches), I kept putting it aside to work on other things. Thanks for looking.

That's is beautiful. What a professional looking finish etc. For a second I thought it a magazine picture! I agree with Pandaca..the patience of a saint! Lovely colour also.

WOW! That's just gorgeous. The color is wonderful and I can't even begin to imagine how many hours that must have taken you to knit!

It's really really beautiful, fantastic job :thumbsup:

I have to agree with everyone--it's looks absolutely professional!:happydance:I hope you're posting the rest of your FO's--you're obviously a perfectionist and your photography is great, too!:thumbsup:

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I really appreciate it.

If the picture quality is good, I must have somehow fluked it. Now I'm going to be nervous when I photograph my next FO. :lol:

I made a pact with myself to knit 20 adult sized garments from stash yarn before even considering buying more yarn, and that's what spurred me on. This was number twelve (since I started counting). Thirteen if I count the cardi that just needed a button sewn on, but including that that would probably be cheating. Do you think? :shifty:
