Lamour my love

It's been finished a few days now but only now I get round to show it of...

Pattern: Lamour slipover by Sarah Hatton (from Rowan magazine #44)
Yarn: approx 350g Jaeger Roma in Cinnamon
Needles: 3.25mm & 4mm

Jaeger Roma is a very stretchy viscose/angora blend (now discontinued, which is just crazy!) that goes really well with this pattern. Leaf lace was very simple to knit and the end result has nice depth to it. It's beautiful how light and shade play in the surface of this lace pattern. All in all a nice and wearable layering piece with a vintage touch. Lovely - methinks.
oh yes - I made the tab detachable, so that I can wear my slipover with or without it. Turned out pretty well. :-)

As for the baby cardi -decided to knit it in plain stockinette with cabling in raglan sleeve "seams". Have already knitted the body and one sleeve and am my way of knitting the other sleeve. Then I'm planning to finish it with some dark red picot edges. Maybe. Not sure yet.
