Almost there

I've finished the skirt of my new sweater and I couldn't be more thrilled. 
I've still got to finish off the neckline and decide whether I want to add lace to the sleeves but it fits beautifully and it's softer than a baby's bum so I'm happy. 

It's always a gamble to design on the fly like this and the stakes are even higher when the gamble involves handspun luxury fibers (alpaca, merino, silk, angora and cashmere). I've held my breath through this process but it looks exactly like I saw in my mind's eye all those weeks ago. That's very satisfying, to say the least.
