Rowan Summer Tweed Ms. Marigold

I frogged the project that I was originally working on with the lovely Summer Tweed from Rowan. Mainly because I stumble across a pattern called Ms. Marigold, which I really liked. I paid the usual $6 for the pattern and knit the whole thing within 3-4 days.
I had four skeins of creamy white yarn and bought an extra two skeins of sand to finish the edges. So another 200 g out of the good ol' stash.

I'm not completely 'over the moon' here - I wanted a tighter fit, but once I wash it and such things might look better. Not that I don't like the end result - I do - and I'll wear this little sucker when it cools down a bit. Though the yarn is 70% silk and 30% cotton it's still too warm for this very nice weather the gods have granted us these days :)
