Finito!

Yeah, had you going for a second, didn't I? I did finish, but it is only the first half. It was a haul, tough. This is the left half.


There is a steek of about 6 inces that will be cut to make the front.


Then you can see the back after that and live stitches are left to graft to the right side when it is done.

THEN....comes the aran/lace sleeve bands as well as the front/lower/collar bands which are done together. Can I envision it? No way. Better get out the wine again.

And number 2, otherwise known as the right side...with the obligatory cup o' java. Hmm...wine..java...wine..java? Oh, my aching kidneys.

And here is a little work done on my Socks for Soldiers.

Four inches of ribbing. It feels like a lifetime of ribbing. I wonder who will wear them? I wonder if he will be safe? Which war zone will he be in? Honestly, you think these things as you make them.

Oh! Almost forgot. Go over and check out Yarnmonkey's Sock Wars! It looks like it is going to be loads of fun. The more the merrier!

Oh, that looks crazy-good!! This is so exciting. I'm sorry I haven't been able to keep up (ok, so I'm like a old lady hobbling along behind your sports car). But I'm there with you for moral support, at least! And I'm almost done with pink-sweater-thing so I can get back into Season soon...

Great work!!! :)
