Comments: Heart Attack and Vine Sweater

That sweater is stunning! It looks beautiful on you, and I love the photos. And I'm a sucker for a crema coloured sweater- just goes with absolutely everything.

Having seen this in real life. I can say that it is as gorgeous as the pictures say. Congrats on finishing it, it's a beautiful labor of love.

This is gorgeous, and the end result looks seamless (ha)! You're inspiring me to finish my Demi sweater after 3 years...

Too bad you couldn't have knit it inside out in the round, and seamed from the inside.

I think it is beautiful. Thank you for the input on seaming vs knitting in the round. I am a huge fan of knitting in the round but never really considered why there may be advantages to knit flat. Now I want to cast on for a lovely white sweater of my own!

As Marissa said above. What about knitting it inside out. I think I'd need a reason not to.

@marissa & @gillian - i did consider making it inside-out, but didn't do it because i wasn't confident i'd be able to knit the leaf motif inside out without messing it up or having it look unsightly because it was done in purl.

actually after a while i really didn't mind the purling. the length of the sweater and converting for my gauge, frogging a couple of times to get there, gave me a much bigger headache than that!

Looks great! Wish I can put this project in my to do queue but i think I have enough to last me past 2 lifetimes!

Very classy and beautiful! Fits you perfectly

The sweater is beautiful; it looks so nice on you. I'm also a sucker for knits in the round, but I'm about to seam up my CPH (a long time UFO). I'm hoping it goes well and that it fits better than the seamless sweaters I've knit.

Well the irritation was well worth it because it just looks perfect on you and it is a 'wear to work with pride' garment for sure!

Love the glimmer of a glorious Rhinebeck weekend in October on this dreary last day of February!
