Both of these are made from Rowan yarns and from the Rowan Beach Cool booklet which is now on for special at the Rowan website. Both yarns knit up using 6.0-7.0mm needles so they were fast knits!
The first one is my own concoction of Sadie and Kelly plus my own random additions using Linen Print. I picked up this yarn from the Knitomatic sale for $2 per skein!! I used 5 1/2 skeins. Shelly, if you are reading this, I still have 2 1/2 skeins left over. BEWARE! This yarn (this colorway) bleeds! My bathtub was bleeding overnight... :(
It's a little bit low in the front but I'm too lazy to fit it now. Might be easier to pair it with a nice lacy camisole.
The second sweater is Cannes, which uses 2 yarns - Cotton Braid and a Cotton Glace. I didn't have any Cotton Glace, so I replaced it with DK Handknit Cotton, a Rowan membership gift. The Cotton Braid was one of my "souvenir" purchases from London last Fall. I find the fit a little bit loose, and while I considered to stick it into the wash, hoping to shrink it a bit, I decided against it. I might consider stitching a few side stitches together to get rid of the extra room.
Gosh! I just re-read my post and it sounds like a Rowan ad! But in the meantime... I just started another Rowan project... go figure!
