the almost-boston sweater

I just finished binding off the collar of my black Terra sweater – the one I didn’t manage to finish before heading off to Boston.

I love it so much! It still needs a gooooood washing/blocking (the black came off a bit on my hands and needles), and when it hits the water it’ll relax a bit as well. I did a couple of additional hip increases on this one, so it actually fits over my beer-and-cheese belly without stretching out over the back.

More notes and finished photos once I’ve done a load of sweater laundry.

    I can’t wait to see the post-wash pictures! Out of curiosity, how do you wash your sweaters? I have yet to perfect that process.
