Progress! I’ve been working on this project for a while, and used the car trip to the Big Horns to finish up the first sleeve!
I’m pretty pleased with how this looks before blocking. I think a gentle steam finish will even things out, and the curve on the back side looks like a good fit for the arms eye on the sweater’s main body.
It is amazing to me that this project is drawing to a conclusion! One more sleeve and the collar before the knitting is finished, and the actual construction begins. Thanks to the notes I took a few weeks ago, the second sleeve is progressing smoothly; I am half way through the second border, and will be on to the main pattern in just a few rounds! It’s time to get serious about purchasing hardware and the other finishing parts. I hope to have this complete for the county fair in mid August, and that is indeed looking possible!
