Well, I finally finished something! Colette's sweater has now been delivered, and here she is wearing it :-
. . . sexy or what?? Wait till she changes the jeans for a pair of fishnet leggings!
You may notice two differences in the above sweater from what was originally planned. Firstly, there's no hood. We changed this because she wanted a slash neck and it was going to be difficult to fit a hood without it dragging the neckline out of shape. Secondly, there's no slash neck! The reason for this was that, when the sweater was almost finished, I tried it on and discovered that there was no way she was going to be able to wear it next to her skin - it was just a bit prickly - therefore, she'd have to wear something under it. A slash neck would have been OK, but it does limit what you can wear underneath it. So, no slash neck and no hood either. I think it looks pretty good on her though.
