Too late for this season

Just finished a v-neck pullover that will have to wait until the fall to be worn. I used Briggs and Little Regal wool and 4.5mm needles. I constructed the sweater a la Elizabeth Zimmermann and steeked the v-neck. I used crochet to fasten the steek and find as Meg Swansen does that "you don't need to get up off the couch." Much easier than dragging out the sewing machine.

Nice job. I've checked out the Briggs and Little website and plan to give their yarn a try. Am also interested in the crocheted steek technique- I may try it out on my current sweater.
