in Rowan 4-ply Soft, 100% merino wool in color Wink.

Pattern is by Alana Dakos from Coastal Knits.
I am a big fan of the book, and even though I've made quite a few
of the patterns already, I'm not done with the book yet!

Gnarled Oak or Rocky Coast is next. 

The pocket and edging are my favorite features.
There is a bit of detail on my sleeve shaping and
notes on how I finished the pocket on my Ravelry page.

 The obligatory "nail polish matches my new sweater" shot ;-)

Is it hot where you are?  Today it was so hot I had to wait until
late afternoon when it cooled off before I could put on a wool sweater.
I do think this will be perfect on cool summer evenings.

Happy knittin'!
