A summer cotton and linen grunge

Oh I love my customers big time,
cause once I've put one of my designs out there, I start to get custom orders, and from there inevitable the design just develops, this was the case with this lushious cotton and linen grunge.
A customer asked if i could make a cream cotton version of my grunge sweater, I already had the perfect summer yarn, so then it was just a case of working out how best to knit it up,
I've double knitted the body of this sweater, whilst the cuffs and the hem are tripple knitted.
The drape is wonderful, and it feels awesome on the skin.

I really wanted to keep this sweater, how perfect it would be for a stroll by the beach on a hot summers night,.
Well anyway, there aren't any beaches in London, so I guess, I'll wrap it up, and get it mailed out to it's owner over there in the warm California sun.
