The Eastlake is finished!

click on photo for close up.


I've been working on the eastlake sweater in the Norah Gaughan Vol 3 by Berocco. I used the Inca Gold it called for and really liked it. It's a silk and merino so the stitch definition is great. Not really for beginners, shows everything amiss. Colors are great and the shippment has been ordered. Barb has finished the Cuzco sweater too and I'll post a picture soon. The manequin is smaller than I am so the eyelets fall a little too low here. They should fall just above the bust not across the center. It's supposed to be asymetrical, the seams lined up perfectly and the only really fussy part of it was the back of the neck. There is an extended section done across the back but it's knit with the front in one piece. It looks sort of like a halter before it's put together.
