Yes, I've finally completed the Moonstone sweater! This project held two firsts for me. It was the first time designing raglan sleeves for cut and sew, and it was my first time cutting and sewing such a lacy fabric. Temporarily stabilizing the cut edges was definitely worth it, and I'm sure I saved myself much frustration. Those of you who've read my Stabilizing Shoulder Seams post know that I wasn't too happy with the transparent elastic used on raglan seams. They did smooth out after washing and a good steam blocking, as you can see from the pic below (taken later in the day), but I still won't use clear elastic for this purpose again... at least not for a very long time.
Besides the boat neck, another design detail I worked into the mix was the extended length in back.
The textile designer in me, however, is most pleased with the details of fabric itself.
