Look what I can do!

I can knit a sweater!

And take pictures of it.

Phoebe on Sunday. Despite being directly in front of a window, the color still turned out like poop. The Arctic Pool Heather is much more blue and not very gray at all.

I have completed the shoulder shaping and at the point in the picture I am ready to start joining the front and back with the sleeve pattern beidging the two.

Today I have completed the first shoulder and will start on the second once I get home. I hope to finish it tomorrow at knit night and do the collar on Friday, block the sweater Saturday and take pictures Sunday.

I believe it will actually fit me. The sleeves are a teensy bit snug... but not exceptionally so. The body has the perfect amount of ease and the sweater will be just the right length. Hooray!
