Yesterday morning, I joined the sleeves to the body of my husband’s sweater, and started happily knitting the Seamless Hybrid shaping. Here, for your enjoyment, is a picture of how it looks with everything on the needles:
(My apologies for the terrible photos lately; there’s only so much I can do when the sun refuses to shine brightly enough through the window!)
The rounds seem to take forever now, which I suppose is hardly surprising, given how many stitches there are between the body and the two sleeves (281, to be precise). But they’re going faster and faster as I decrease, so I’m hoping I can finish this part of the knitting soon! Then there’s the steeking, which still frightens the heck out of me, and then (assuming I don’t destroy the sweater in the process of steeking) I’ll put on the collar and button bands, and he’ll have himself an awesome sweater!
