My first post! 

I knit a sweater based off some of Delphine Wilson's designs

Here's the back:



It looks like a raglan in the front.  I put more pictures on my blog, but can't link to them here for some reason.

There's a "tutorial" there as well.  You might have to copy and paste the link into your browser.  My webhoster fights spam by blocking links sometimes.

Wow.  I love Delphine Wilson's work, and I think you did an amazing job of drawing inspiration for her.

The twisty cabled sleeve is freakin' brilliant.  I'm looking forward to reading what you wrote about this process.

I've been watching this come alive on your blog and I have to say that you're completely amazing. Everyone that I've shown this to has gushed uncontrollably that they love it.

This thread deserves several hundreds praising replies ! For some reason, I couldn't see the picture here, but I visited your blog and I really liked it. I'm usually not into sweaters that involve different colours in any other form than stripes or really cute flower pattern (picky, yeah  Grin), but this one is different.

Thank for the compliments!  I've started swatching for another sweater based off this one.  This one actually looks like it'll be easier.  That spiralling arm thing took a lot of trial and error.

I like that one, even if the nipples are kind of distracting/ scary. Waiting to watch your sweater develop
