V Neck Pullover

Just finished a sweater for my friend Miguel. I usually don't like sissy yarn but this Bluefaced Leicester 2/8 hand painted by the Fleece Artist in Nova Scotia was soft, luxurious, and quite nice to work with. I used a size 3.25 mm needle and knit it in the round from the bottom up. I did a steek for the neck and joined the sleeves to the body at the underarm.

Great sweater, great technique, and the color looks Muscular! I assume you used Lord Raglan's solution to dress with one arm?

Once you get over your steekophobia you realize that it makes the knitting so much easier.
