Just a quick update on my fourth sweater: it's coming along, slowly but surely. I have about 12" of the main body done, which means I have five more inches to go before I start the sleeves. It seems like it's taking forever, but I think I'm just comparing it to the sweaters that I've already done this year, which have gone by pretty fast. This is what the sweater currently looks like:
The twisted rib along the bottom was grueling. It was even worse than my Winnowing shawl (which is hibernating at the moment, by the way) because you twist the knits and purls on both sides! The cabled pattern was easy to memorize.
The yarn is absolutely lovely and has a bit of a tonal thing going on. It's really soft and I just can't wait to wear it! Hopefully I can start the sleeves by this weekend.
