02/01 Casting on!
02/07 Finished raglan increases, divided for sleeves, and now onto waist shaping decreases. Tosh DK is a pleasure to knit with, aside from finding some knots in the skeins.
02/23 Life got in the way of knitting, and my progress slowed considerably. Finished the waist shaping, and I suspect I’ll be done with the body in the coming days.
02/27 After the silly few inches of ribbing that seemed like it wouldn’t grow, the body is bound off and now I’m onto the sleeves!
03/11 Sleeves took about a week and a half. I made them bracelet length to keep them out of my way. Had a bit of trouble picking up stitches for the front panels, but crisis averted. Ribbing is done on the first front panel. Time to get my booty in gear and finish already.
04/01 Knitting mojo went on vacation, but after a baby knitting detour, is finally back. Several rows into the collar ribbing. That means I’m in the home stretch. Wahoo!
04/04 Bound off, ends woven in, and blocking as I type. Pics to come!
