my Freeform Sweater is done

I finished it a few days ago but my photographer wasn't ready.  This is what I want to do videos to explain.  Yes, I'd rather do some videos than write up a pattern.

My figure is getting matronly compared to what it used to be(at one point downright anorexic) but I still have curves and this sweater works them.  It's a good design for drapey fibers like alpaca.

One thing I decided would work well with alpaca is a split welt hem, instead of ribbing.  I can tuck this into my waistline if I want to, though at this point I look better not doing that.  It is a seamless design.  The yarn is a blend of natural brown and purple dyed light fawn alpaca.
