This is when I’m really glad I knit the sleeves first. I’m not sure I’d have the will to continue after pushing through this body.
What’s amazing is once the knitting is complete, the taupe really seems to pop. When on the needles, it was very hard to differentiate it from the white.
I’ve got a lot more to do, least of all sewing in the ends, but next step after blocking is STEEKING! Now that I’ve done it a few times, I no longer dread it. I can’t wait!
I didn’t realize that the sweater had a cord at the hem, so I’ve been searching for accessory kits and debating the value of a Dale Zipper. I think I’ll wait till it’s blocked so I can measure the opening.
We got some of the leap year day snow storm today, but I didn’t get any pictures. If there’s still snow in the morning, I’ll try to capture it. I hope if you were in the path of the storm you are staying warm!
