Femme Fatale

I hear that the original use of the name Rowena was for a femme fatale character - so that's what I'll call myself while wearing my Rowena cardigan.


Seriously - even though this sweater is almost a year in the making, it was worth it. Look at it. Look at that edging. My goodness it's pretty.


I have left it loose and swingy as opposed to putting buttons on the front (this is primarily due to the fact that I ran out of yarn....not because of my exceptional style or anything).



I'm still struggling with ribbon options. Below is choice #2. I'm not completely happy with either and think that for now I may go ribbonless.


In the meantime I will bask in the joy of a finished object. A finished object for me. I will take it with me this weekend as I go to visit both of my grandmothers in Saskatchewan. I hope to get some knitting love from my Grandma that used to knit. It's only recently that I've realized that she was quite a knitter in the past - and I hope to hear more about it this weekend.
