Rose Finished

I'm feeling very proud of myself - I have finished my Rose vest and I'm really pleased with the results.

I love the colours of the yarn and I think my choice of Fair isle patterns really works well. The yarn is perfect for the project. It is Rowan's Scottish Tweed 4 ply - a little on the rough side to wear next to the skin but ideal for wearing over blouses or tees. The roughness gives the vest a rustic quality that is reminiscent of the 1940s landgirls.
It would work equally well as a casual top or for smarter occasions.
The pattern will follow - in the twinkling of an eye!


  1. Congratulations, what a wonderful vest. I really like it, but it seems difficult to knit. You must be very handy. I have found so many fantastic things in your blog. This week I have tried the bees and I love them.
    Have a good time from Eva in Sweden

  2. Love your vest but what caught my eye was your garden... had to check where you lived because I could of mistaken it for my backyard in our old house... ha ha We sure live a long way from each other... ha ha
