Eriskay photo shoot

This is a cardigan designed by Jean Moss. Its quite an oldie , traditional garment with lots of little cabling and geometric shapes . I used rowan's felted tweed in a rustic orange color-nice for autumn. It took way too long to knit... I promised to knit a scarf for my sister's dog and knitted it whilst she stayed at my house. What I did not realised is that she chose the cheapest green acrylic of a long thread (I dare not call it yarn, that would be a blasphemy !) It actually squeaked on my needles, and to top it all it had to be finished with a grisly pink. Ahem, that was not a labour of love.. I'll have to ask her for some photos of her beloved visla when she's back home ..
