Well, we've reached a major milestone, Autumn Rose and I.

We've reached the armholes.

Which means that this piece gets to rest for a while now while I start the sleeves.

Of course, I haven't printed out my revised-to-fit-my-row-gauge sleeve schematic yet, so that's just a little . . . tricky . . . at the moment.

But, no matter! It feels really good to have gotten her this far. There's still a lot of work to do, but the main part of the body is such a huge chunk of it, it's very satisfying to have it done.

And I'm looking forward to how fast it's going to feel that the sleeves are going, compared to this, too . . .

Well done. I'm finding my sleeves are taking longer than I thought, but I blame that on using less than slippery bamboo dpns. I hope your sleeves just fly off the needles.

Well, I've got about an inch of the ribbing done, so no, not really flying at this point. But that could be the ribbing's fault!
