I do not know why I don’t knit more often with colors like this. It is so pretty to look at in my hands! I named the project “The Color of Flowers” because it is the same coral color as the flowers on my front porch. (Please see bottom photo.)

I picked the color to go with a beautiful silk skirt of mine which has a watercolor-like floral print. I will have to photograph the skirt and put it on this page at some point. So pretty. (Done. See the second from last photo.)

Finished the seaming on Friday, wore it to a wedding with the skirt on Saturday, and took the photos today. The sweater fit very well but not too close. I was happy with my outfit.

My only modification was to knit only 1” of the rosette pattern for the neckband.
