Rowan Atmosphere Sweater finally finished!
After 6 months of slow knitting, I finally finished this sweater! It's knit in Rowan Plaid yarn in colourway called Washed Pebbles, which is merino + acrylic + alpaca. It's bulky weight yarn and is really nice to knit with. The only trouble is it's a bit splitty, because it has 3 threads, each in a different colour. Anyway, Hubby simply loves it and thus agreed to model it for me and for the benefit of the forum ! I loved the pattern and i actually knit the XS size. It's my first serious cables project and i'm in love !
So here we go:

I love those cables so much! Very pretty. Sorry, not pretty, ruggedly handsome or something...

Hi'ya Natalia!

Well now...THAT is one gorgeous man...I mean, SWEATER!

Seriously, your pullover is just WONDERFUL! And I especially like the yarn you selected! It is RIGHT ON!

You should be VERY PROUD of your knitted artwork! And lucky you...your man will wear a sweater! Sigh!

Thanks for taking time to post the photos for us!

Hugs,

Dollyce aka The Artlady
