The things I do for love!

Today it is hot... really really hot. And I don't do *heat* very well. Rogue is knit in Rowan Yorkshire Tweed - a VERY warm yarn, and here I am wearing it in 30+ degree heat. Notice the slightly manic grin, and pained expression - they're there because I'm both ecstatic that I've finally finished, and sad that it will probably never be cool enough to wear the damn thing! Anyway, I met my deadline of the 22nd of February, even beating it by a couple of days! So here is Rogue done in Rowan Yorkshire Tweed in "Muffin", knit on 4.5 (flat) and 5mm (in the round) needles. I may try and take some better photos of the cable detail when it's a bit cooler :)
