The Last Sweater.. continued from my previous machine embroidered sweater post

I am on the last handmade sweater. I chose an Urban Threads (www.urbanthreads.com) machine embroidery design from their Painterly collection. It is a loosely stitched design which will be pretty on the knitted sweater.

I have trimmed the stabilizer on the back close to the edge of the designs. I also trim the water soluble stabilizer on the front to limit the potential for goo in my washing machine.
These sweaters get washed on the gentle cycle in warm with regular detergent. I splash some cleaning strength white vinegar into the rinse slot as knits like the low pH.

 Finished and ready to donate
