Soleil blocking: I'm ready for summer!
I have pretty much finished Soleil. It is currently blocking on the floor. I tried it on before blocking it. Thus far I'm not really sure about it. It is extremely low-cut and it is also not very long. Perhaps it would work better on someone petite. The sweater also requires some pretty severe blocking to open up the lace on the bottom and to keep the armhole edge from curling. This concerns me a bit because it is a summer sweater that you would not wear over another shirt. As a result it seems that the sweater would require a lot of washing and hence blocking every time. Anyhow, I will post a picture when I am able to wear the sweater.
