At long last, I made time to download these pictures of my finished Salina to my computer. I love this sweater! I've been wearing it out more than I thought I would and it just so happens that it is very comfortable!! I've done almost all my Christmas shopping in this sweater.

A close up on the great buttons...

Pattern: Salina by Kim Hargreaves from Rowan's Vintage Style
Yarn: Rowan's Felted Tweed in Herb (146) 5.25 balls for XS size
Needles: Addi Turbo circulars 3.25mm and 3.75mm
Mods: I increased the length of the body by 1 cm before the waist shaping as well as the sleeve length by 1 cm just before working the increases. I also sewed down the buttonhole flap at the bottom because my 5 cast on stitches seemed a little tight and pulled up a bit. I really enjoyed knitting this sweater. The felted tweed made the plain stockinette stitching interesting. And I LOVE moss stitch! I could knit this again... although, if I were, I think I would figure out how to make the arm holes not so big. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with the turn out.

Gosh this is so pretty!!! It fits you so well I can see why it's an instant fave!

I have the yarn in my stash and a few wips to finish before I can start mine but at least I have yours for inspiration!
