The Cross Your Heart Sweater has been in the UFO pile since I lost interest after I finished the knitting. Having pinned the pieces in place to see how the piece would look finished, I realized that despite the use of alpaca, the sweater is waaaaay too itchy for me. This didn’t helped my motivation one bit.
Finally, I pushed myself to sew it together! It’s a great going out top and sexy to boot. Here’s what it looks like:

As you can see, the Cross Your Heart Sweater has a seam up the back. This comes from the fact that have of the stitches are in reverse stocking knit so that the texture mataches back and front.
