Saga Rose Finished

Saga Rose pattern from Jamieson Shetland Book 3 finished! Although I didn't think the colors called for would work together I like the way it came out. I tried several substitutes for the Chestnut called for and finally went back to it. Who would ever think Maroon, Red Currant and rusty Chestnut would look well together! This was project #1 on my Monhegan Island retreat, now on to Trellis Rose which has one sleeve and the second started. "Trellis" is knitted with Halcyon's Victorian and is really an easy knit. Only two colors to work with which is a pleasure and goes very fast.
