The woman modeling the sweater was just as I had imagined Penelope, and she was glorying in the beach, which became Porthkerris in my mind. I just have to share these photos with you. They were taken by Carol Feller, who also designed the pattern.
My version is coming right along, surprisingly quickly. My yarn is thicker than what the pattern calls for, so I'm knitting a size smaller than I am, which should give me a perfect fit.
