Sneak peek

I tried on the beginning of my new sweater, so I thought I'd post a picture.

The stockinette portion has not been washed, so it's still thin and oily. When I wash it, it won't be see-through (like the lower portion).

My design theme for this sweater is faux-seams. The seams start in the lower portion of the sweater. Waist shaping causes ribs to come together and twist into cabled "seams" on the front and back. After I finish the bust, the front and seams will curve like on a tailored garment. I'm not sure whether they'll twist together at the shoulders or spread into arm seams (or both). We'll have to see where the muses take me.
