The pullover is off the needles, the sleeves have been grafted on and it has been blocked and dried!
It is now ready to be gifted to my daughter when she arrives for a Thanksgiving visit with family,
late Sunday night!
The sweater is long and slender just like her!
The back is just the same as the front which is nice and makes the knitting very interesting!
I have purchased yarn to make this for me; now that I have knit this once,
I know what to expect so I will change things up--I will knit the sweater bottom up this time
(not top down!),
I will knit the sleeves on the machine again but when I get to the yoke,
I will be able to pick up the sleeve stitches and knit the top to the ribbed neck.
That's the plan;
I will cast on today as I sit at a birthday party
for one of Will's classmates so he can go and be a kid!
