What was your inspiration?
I tried on the sample sweater last winter and was blown away by how soft and drapey it was, a beautiful wardrobe staple. It was then I knew I must make it.
What are you most proud of?
The perfect seams.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use blocking pins and a ruler when blocking to make sure your pieces are the size you wish them to be.
Alpaca has is very susceptible to distortion when wet - do not let it hang, even in a little bit, when transferring from blocking tub to flat surface.
If you're mindful of this, you should be good to go!
