Design Opportunity

Sweater-Back-Pillow

I started this sweater two years ago (I think).
I completed the back as you can see, but just could not get going on the front.

Sweater-Back-Pillow-Before
The yarn is an expensive baby alpaca yarn (Artesano - Inca Mist) and I have a lot of it.
I ripped out what I had knitted for the front
but when I went to rip out the back, I just couldn't do it.
It was so pretty and I had put a lot of work into it.
So I decided to make it into a throw pillow and I am so glad I didn't frog this!

The sweater pattern is called
Summer Hours and by Chris Bylsma Designs
It is beautifully written and a great design.
I just ran out of steam.
