Finished Object Friday

Yeah!  I finished my sweater in time.  I will not have to put it in the suitcase wet or unblocked.  Unfortunately i am by myself right now so pictures are not that great.  I experimented with my camera timer for the first time but without a tripod, it is difficult.  So then I went to the camera in front of face in the mirror trick.  Not ideal but you get the gist of it.

It fits well and I am very happy with it.  I do need to wear a cami under it but that just could because of my age and upbringing.  I'll also be the last woman in the world wearing pantyhose.

I will try to get better pictures next week.   Now I can focus on figuring out what to bring to the Knit and Crochet Show next week.  My homework is done but what to bring is always a big deal.  What to wear and what to work on.

A few close ups of the details.  This is beading and horizontal welts at the waist line.  The welts show up above almost looking like bumps.  I don't know that they would always work but they provide the transition from the vertical pin tucks to the body.

I'm also very happy with the neck line.  Two rows of applied I cord - one rolled forward and exposed the pick up stitches.  Two laid flat.

Head over to Tami's and Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see what everyone else is doing.
