Finally finished! Rowan Movie star dressing gown
Hooray! I've finally finished my dressing gown!

It's my biggest project,(I've only done a scarf and a bag!).
It took 5 months, but I wasn't working on it everyday. I'm pleased it's finished and I am wondering what to knit next!

Here's the link to my photo album, I hope you like the finished item. Thanks to everyone who helped when I got stuck!
