More FOs

I am on a roll!! I have another WIP finished. Break out the champagne!

Pattern: Iceland from Rowan 42
Yarn: RYC Soft Tweed - 10 balls
The recommended yarn wasRowan Cocoon but I couldn't really justify spending on more yarn as the stash is extensive.
Needle size: 7mm
Thoughts: I really liked the pattern when I first set eyes on Rowan 42. Now that its on me, I love it even more. The only drawback is that I attach myself on doorknobs and other protusions. The pattern is pretty easy. The yarn knits up well even though it is bit squeaky on the needles. I had to knit and reknit the ribbing a few times to get it right. It's not perfect but I'm willing to ive with it.

OH Ling. It is a masterpiece. I love the color, the look. You are amazing.

That's interesting, is the top part knit sideways? Love the colour, but I think I'd find the sleeves a bit of a handfull on me. Suits you nicely though.

That looks really sharp! The pattern reminds me of water flowing.
