test knit of the broadcast sweater by ericacanknit!

nov 1, 2011-cast on for some movie theatre knitting!

nov 3, 2011-ribbing done.

nov 8, 2011-waist shaping done, working on the bust shaping. 2 skeins used, body getting close to done.

feb 8, 2013- why do sweaters take me like two years to knit? silly stuff. cast on for the first sleeve. 96 rows after the cuff.

i have five skeins of yarn from 3 different dye lots. what a mess. i’m alternating rows like a crazy person at the top of this sweater, and unfortunately it is quite visible where the newer skeins start. but i’ll do what i can to integrate it as much as possible.

feb 16, 2013- finished sleeve no. 2! joined body.

feb 18, 2013- finished shoulders, working on the ribbing!

feb 17, 2013- began scoop neck at the same time as i started the cables for the raglan. trying to power through so that i might, hopefully, finish this long presidents days weekend. (fingers crossed!)

mar 4, 2013- blocking!

post-block- well, the sleeves were 3/4 before blocking, but are now pretty much full length.
