The fronts and back are done blocking for my capstone sweater. But I have two questions, what kind of sleeves should I make and what would be a better name than “capstone sweater”.

  2. That is very pretty, can’t wait to see it on! It looks like it will be very feminine. I am picturing a sleeve that has just a *bit* of poofiness/gathering at the top (shoulder), and maybe a bell or slight ruffle at the cuff proportional to the gentle fullness of the skirt. I think a 3/4 sleeve would be a nice length, but you could also do a shorter sleeve. (For some reason I am not picturing a long sleeve.) Hope that makes sense. Sorry if my terminology lacks precision, I am not a clothing designer… Congrats on going for your Expert Knitter certification!

  4. Oh, and for the name… Something feminine and Celtic, maybe? Too bad “Fiona” and “Siobhan” are already taken as names for cardigans/jackets, I was thinking they might fit nicely with the feel of this…

  6. How about Adele for the sweater name? My grandmothers name was actually Adelia but she hated it and went by Adele.I am just kidding:) I agree with the above comment on a bell sleeve. That would look perfect on the sweater. I am picturing a long sleeve. But 3/4 would be nice also. It is really a work of art. You are so talented. I will think of some names.
