Autumn Rose finale.....
It's done.....well, I think I'll give it a steam press to set it now that I know it fits. After steaming, I'll clean up the neckline steek and tack it down. But other than that, it's done!
I was trying to find something to wear with it -- the model in the book has an orange top underneath.......even though I love orange, did I have fine scoop neck orange camisole type top - NO!
Both look good in their own way.
It's funny how the shades in this sweater work with other colours.
DH loves it -- he said "finally, a figure flattering fair isle". Daisy seemed to like it too.....she loves getting her photo taken so here's one with Daisy.
OK, I'm not big on the photo thing, but I wanted anyone out there contemplating Autumn Rose to see that it does look ok on someone that isn't stick thin (I'm definitely not stick thin). It can be adjusted -- not so low a neckline, not as nipped in at the waist, whatever you want.
Next project? You'll have to wait until the next post when I hope to have a swatch to show you -- guess what -- it's not fair isle!!!
