Salina is progressing wonderfully. I've finished one of the sleeves and have just cast on the back. I've worked a few rows of the seed stitch ribbing of the back, and it is turning out lovely. This sweater pattern is so simple, yet it has some really nice details. I really love the seed stitch ribbing, cuffs, and collar. I absolutely love working with the Rowan felted tweed and I am so far very happy with the stitch quality of it. The colors are abosultely gorgeous and I really can't wait to finish this one and get it on me!

Joy is coming along as well, though not quite as quickly. Joy is knit on size 3 needles, while Salina is on size 5s (besides the seed stitch details, which are knit with 3s), so progress is a bit slower on Joy. I am in the middle of the first sleeve, and I really love the "Bristle" colorway of the yorkshire tweed 4-ply. It's going to be the perfect fall sweater!
