So yesterday was my birthday, and amazingly it was almost 60 degrees! What a beautiful day it was! I took the day off work, and today too, because, really, who wants to go back to work on a Friday ;) I had a fun day of Christmas shopping and then Nathan and I went out for a nice dinner.
Now, on to an exciting FO report…I have finally finished Salina!! I actually finished knitting the pieces last year, but I put it away because I was concerned about the seaming! I didn’t really mean to put it off for a whole year, but that’s what happened.
Pattern: Salina by Kim Hargreaves (my Ravelry page)
Started: September 5, 2008
Completed: November 27, 2010
Yarn: Rowan Rowanspun DK
I ended up adding more length to the sleeves before attaching the cuffs. I was also a little confused about what the pattern was saying regarding the cuff attachment. I think I did it differently than I was supposed to, but I like how they turned out. Other than that, I didn’t make any other changes to the pattern.
I certainly learned about seaming by the time I completed this sweater! I also realized that I would much rather knit a sweater, sleeves, etc. in the round rather than needing to do a lot of seaming. From now on, no matter what the pattern says, I will knit in the round if at all possible!

Beautiful. I should really pull out some hibernating wips myself.
Sounds like the perfect birthday.
Very, very nice! But since the thought of seams has sapped my mojo on my pink sweater… I hear you!
PS – Glad you had a good birthday. Why can’t I remember that yours falls between the Knight’s and my sister’s?
Love it….and as always, you make the best model ever.
This looks absoutely perfect on you. Wonderful job.
it looks beautiful on you! A happy late birthday to you teri!!!! i hope it was a good one!
We are talking about coming out to minis in the mountains again next august! :)))
I hope you had a happy, happy birthday! The sweater is so pretty, especially the soft color.
That is a beautiful sweater! And it fits you so well.
Congratulations on a job well done!
P.S. You must have rubbed off on me – I actually won a KAL prize of yarn! I can’t wait until it gets here.
Happy Belated BD! Glad you had a fun one! :O) Your sweater came out fantastic! (I love your shoes too!)
I agree with the other comments – color, fit, model, pattern – all great on YOU! Well done! You might try a raglan sleeve next. I remember that being easier than the regular sleeve. Maybe that will be my project now! :)
Where did you take the photos? Should water run on those steps, or around them? Dad is wondering.
It is gorgeous! A real classic. And the finish is perfect! Can’t wait to see it in person. And I am soo very sorry I missed your birthday. Many happy returns.
Wow, that is so cute. It looks great on youe :)
