Better pictures coming soon - I just haven’t had a chance to have someone else take them and my webcam can only do so much.

Moved from a 16” fixed US6 circular to an interchangeable circular with a 32” cable at the end of raglan repeat 6. No modifications so far; really like how this fabric is knitting up.

Update, 17 Apr: Finished skein 1 at the beginning of the 10th four-row raglan increase repeat.

Update, 25 Apr: Finished skein 2 with 7.5” of stockinette under the arms done. Slipped a stitch a few rows back, going to have to fix that.

Update, 3 May: Bound off body using Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. Still some of skein 3 left.

Update, 12 May: Picked up 7 stitches at underarm, but otherwise proceeding as with size S. Finished skein 3 at beginning of sleeve #1. After decreases, there are 17 sts on DPN1; thumbhole will be between stitches 12 and 13.

Update, 16 May: Finished sleeve #1. Went with a sewn bind-off for sleeves.

Update, 19 May: Anime Central delivers! Science officer pin acquired.

Update, 22 May: Finished skein 4 after second decrease in second sleeve.
