Le dos, c'est fini, mes amis! Or, the back is finished my friends. And hajelluah that it is. I managed to shape the shoulders tonight while I waited for a very fussy Sabrina to fall asleep. But, this bodes well because now, I can a) start the front of the sweater (I know I said I was going to do the sleeves first, but I'm waffling on that idea) and b) that means I can do more work on my Chevron scarf without guilt (it's only about 2x as long as it was the last time I posted a picture). I've already decided in my head that Cindy is going to finish this one for me. That way I know it will get done! Hopefully, she will allow me to have her finish it. I know I could do it, but after all this hard work, I want it to look perfect, and that means her work! And FYI, if I ever turn up missing, check this sweater first for a DNA match because I've sewn a wig's-worth of hair into this baby.
Also, wanted to post another FO pic, this one of the cashmere scarf that I made him for Christmas. Once sweater weather appears again, this will look lovely with his sweater. I'm also planning socks in the same navy Cashsoft. He says he will be "too hard" on them, but he doesn't know the resiliency of the hand-knit sock! I love the detail on this mistake rib scarf (pattern logically from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, who else) on the back especially. Unfortunately, this picture doesn't quite do the colors justice, and I probably should have re-blocked as he wore it a lot!
Now, much as I love you all, I must go because someone has to make sure the Easter baskets are filled for Anastasi tomorrow!
