I've been chugging away on my sweater, and I'm really pleased with it so far. Tomorrow, I will move all my little stitches to scrap yarn and try it on before I start increasing. I think I could finish the entire sweater before the end of the year if I really push myself, but a lot can happen over the next 9 days.
I really love the way this yarn feels and looks. I think I've settled on a solid sweater, no stripes, although, who knows? I could surely change my mind again.
