EZ saves the day (or at least my sweater)

I started this sweater some months ago, intending to knit "Salina" from Vintage Knits, only in the round. Halfway through the body I lost interest (the agony of endless red stockingette stitch!) When I picked it back up, I changed my mind, and decided to use EZ's saddle shoulder sweater instructions. I plugged my numbers into her percentages, and knit on like a madwoman.
I was very pleased with the results.
Check out the Saddle detail! (and please forgive that I'm learning to photograph my knits in the mirror!)

  • Looks great on you! Fabulous job!

    I was thinking of knitting Salina in the round, too, but wasn't sure how well it would go....

  • I love it! Too much red? No way. I'd wear it every day if it were in my closet.
