The sweater made from Phildar Détente, purchased during my French vacation, is finished. Here it is, modeled by Zebula (with Vorlon hovering in the background):
I love how this turned out! I’m always a little disappointed with sweaters that I make for myself, probably because I’m hyper-critical of my own appearance like anybody else, but this one looks adorable! I uncharacteristically went through the extra step of steam blocking it, which relaxed the yarn, and got rid of what little curl there was at the bottom of the body pieces. Zebula loves it, but I do feel bad for making her put it on for the photo shoot in this muggy heat, if only for five minutes.
The pattern was very clear and well-written. I’m looking forward to starting the sweater for Vorlon.
