Newly Finished

Here's an early look at a sweater I finished knitting this weekend.  I was really happy to finally be finished with it because I had to redo the neckline a bunch of times before I was satisfied.  It was super frustrating, but in the end I'm pleased with how it turned out.

This sweater is actually a variant of a custom order I did recently, in which the stripes were very pale.  I figured for this one, I would use brighter stripes, but the overall effect is still pretty demure.

I think this sweater would work well in a more coordinated color scheme as well, for example different shades of pink for the stripes.  Or a dark blue blue sweater with stripes in medium blue, light blue, and white.

I need to block the sweater over the next few days, which should smooth it out and make it look "finished," but it should be available on Etsy soon.
