Random thoughts: The cables in the collar are stunning, they really pop out. The long stretch of stockinette seemed boring, but the result is really worth it. The asymmetrical hem was a surprise to me, I guess I could have made it symmetrical, but it looks fine as it is. Sewing down the edges of the hem band, cuff bands, and collar to the wrong side made a world of difference, before that they looked just floppy. The sleeves are a bit long due to the difference in row gauge, but that's okay as I wanted them like that. I don't usually block, so I just used a dry iron and a damp cloth. The alpaca makes this pullover slightly fuzzy and extremely warm, so I'll be using it in the winter or even now, instead of a jacket.
