Photo Finish is a top-down raglan top, featuring a lace panel down the sleeves and detail at the neck. It was my Rhinebeck sweater for the very warm 2017 festival; nothing else I had knit would do, so I knit a light top with the light and lovely Dance Rustic Silk. The name comes from the speed in which I worked the sample; I cast on Tuesday morning and bound off Thursday night.
