I have been working on Salina from Vintage Style off and on since March. Not really being in a rush to get it done, it was worked on slowly when I needed something else to do for a while. I'm using Rowan Felted Tweed in Herb and I'm doing the XS size with a few modifications.

As you might be able to see, I'm knitting both sleeves at the same time. I am lengthening them a touch and want them to end up being the same. So to avoid any error, and to get them done seemingly 'quicker' they are both on the needles.

My goal now is to have it done in time for my trip to see my family on the first of next month -just under a week away and I'll be working four of those days. We'll see if I can manage it! I love a challenge.

You're almost there! Have fun with the finishing.

Are you lengthening according to your own arm length, or the photo in the book? The sleeves on the model in the book seem to be 3/4, but when I knit them (I made a Salina a couple of years ago) they came out wrist length.

Oh, it's the green *herb* felted tweed! It's gorgeous...hurry and seam it - I wanna see it!!

Thanks so much for the kind comment you left me about my newly finished Salina...and thanks for visiting my blog!

Now that I've found you, I'll stop by to see what you're up to!
