    Holy cow – that took you no time at all! I have the yarn to knit one of those up for myself but I have to lose a little weight first because I don’t want to deal with fussing with the pattern to make it fit the size I am now! Yours is just lovely. xo
    PS – You couldn’t have a double chin if you tried…

    You look stunning and beautiful! The sweater is just as lovely of course. I would never ever take it off either (unless during a hot flash..)

    Rachel, your beautiful, the sweater is beautiful and together…perfection!
    I love it! Are you sleeping in it? 😉 I just finished Annabel and have cast on another in grey. Now I just need some cold weather! I have the Shalom pattern, but haven’t knit it yet. I think I am going to knit Annabel for all the females on my Christmas list, [oh dear]!

    You look gorgeous, Rachel, and the sweater came out just lovely!

    While I do make stuff for myself, I rarely wear it unless it is a hat or mittens/gloves.

    I did, however, have a lovely knitter friend make me a hat in exchange for one I made her. 😉 I do have plans to wear that hat proudly this winter since I love it so much.

    By the way, I hate to disagree with you but…you don’t have a double chin.
    Nice try, though. 😉

    Lovely. Absolutely lovely!

  10. oh..this looks gorgeous on you Rachel! I love it ..and you make very very pretty model. I’ve been knitting a scarf and want to make a beanie/hat to match. If only I could find where I put the pattern LOL!

    I really love that sweater- And it looks so good on you! You’re a speedy gal, Madame J! Looks like you’re all set for autumn:)

    Awesome!!!! It looks so incredible! By the way, no double chin in sight…I should know as the proud wearer of one – NOT! Beautiful – the model and sweater

    GORGEOUS!!!!!!! I’m jealous – I want that sweater! It’s in my queue, once I figure out all the details. Lucky for me, a shop hop is coming up, and I may stop in to a couple of new shops (ones I don’t shop at) and see what they have in stock. I may walk out with a couple of skeins of Cascade Eco, if I can find it. 🙂

    Oh, Rachel!!! Shalom is perfection!!! A perfect fit! (I really had to giggle—about taking your ball winder on vacation! What a hoot!!!) As a 3 year old grandson used to tell me…..good job (grandma), I’m proud of you!!!!!

  15. woohoo! way to go. beautiful, beautiful sweater. oh my goodness. and, LOVE the color. I think I may have found my next project.

  16. […] in crime during last year’s Summer Sweater KAL (the same KAL this year got me knitting this). She’s been an enabler as I drool over all her gorgeous knits, and an inspiration as she […]

    Lovely sweater, congratulations! I went on holiday recently, took a load of knitting supplies with me and managed half an inch of one sock! I am so very nearly done with my KAL sweater/cardigan….just need to sew up one sleeve and stitch the back neck band. I am very excited, especially as the weather here has started to turn cold

    Oh Rachel, it’s gorgeous, as are you my dear friend! I’m so proud of you. I’ve got a sweater in the works for this mama, of course I haven’t worked on it in months, I’m in that sewing phase after all.

  19. SB says:

    It’s beautiful Rachel! And you look great in it!

  20. jill says:
