Ok. Whew. The largest part of the sweater is done. Whew. Here's a pic.... I put the ball of yarn in there as perspective, but suffice to say the outside edge is 144 inches.
Now I need to cast on the back / sleeves, but taking a little time to knit up the Manos design.
The Vogue pattern is working out nicely. It's going to be a cropped sweater, possibly with 3/4 length sleeves. I really like the colours - and the sweater is working up nicely. And with the crappy winter weather the colours are bright!!
