Handspun Adventure Sweater

I finished this sweater on thursday. I knit it from a raw cheviot fleece that I spun up into a bulky two-ply yarn. From fleece to finish was about three weeks work.

Ok, I've Got My Kevlar Suit On (Seamless of Course). Fire Away!

This is not meant to be rude or to inflame, but let’s apply some scientific thinking to the idea that seams provide structure, shape or ease in blocking to knitwear.
