Bayside Pullover by Hannah Fettig from the fabulous Coastal Knits.
 My 4th garment from this book!  I love them all.
Yarn is the discontinued Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4 Ply in Dessicated.

 The yarn is next-to-the-skin soft.  And beautiful.  Hey, it's tweed!  
Sometimes you wonder why a yarn is discontinued.
 I'm crazy about a simple, well-fitting pullover with simple details.
 Lovely detail on the sides.  I used the "cable needle free" method.
Today I went to Stitches West where I met Alana Dakos and other "knitting stars"!
Pictures tomorrow!
