It's finished :-)
...well here it is, my finished red sweater :-)
According to my yarn stash, this could be the first of many!!
I really liked knitting this, using Elizabeth Zimmermann's percentage system (EPS). It's the first thing I've made using her system, and I'm really happy with how it turned out :-)
I did have to undo some of the body. I thought it needed some waist shaping, and I'm really glad that I did, coz it feels, and looks, heaps better now. The edging was just finished off with some crocheted chains anchored to the body with a slip stitch...the edges are curling a bit, but I was more eager to take a photo of it, than I was to block it.....Love the knitting, don't love the finishing!
There's a closer neckline piccy on my blog
Happy knitting! Linda
