Arwen pics

Back from vacation, so I decided to post my pics. Though I'm happy with the outcome, I really suck at seaming, so I have to twist the sweater around a bit, everytime I wear it, so it doesn't look lopsided. I even made a matching Apres Ski Kerchief from Handknit Holidays, since I have so much yarn left over.

Your sweater looks great. I can screw up a perfectly good sweater with crappy finishing, so I'm working the back and front together - at least I can eliminate the side seams.

Congratulations on finishing, enjoy your sweater.

Your cardi came out so cute. I can't wait to finish mine.

Your sweater still looks good! I ma thinking of knitting the fronts and back together also. I read somewhere that technique is a well-known knitting blogger's favorite way to save on seaming.

I think it looks great on you!

Have you thought about reblocking the sweater? A good wet block? Maybe that will fix the twisting problem.

I wet-blocked it twice. I think the error was in the seaming, so I've done the best I can. Thanks for all the great comments, guys! I really enjoyed making this sweater, so I'm just viewing my mistakes as a learning process. I just bought a couple booklets on finishing techniques, so my next sweater should look much more professional!

I'm totally jealous too. Life has conspired against my Arwen, but with any luck, April's my Arwen month. I'll have to look at your photo for inspiration.

I'm the same about seaming. Looks great!
