Sweater Body

I finished the body of my sweater today. I even impressed myself. It looks nice. The hood is all cables and it's so nice and snug. I love it.

Next up I have to make the sleeves. I'm afraid of having to put the sleeves on the body, but my seaming has been OK so far. Maybe I'll do alright after all. Also, it looks like this sweater will be done so much sooner than expected. Very cool cause I had a really geeky idea to knit proteins and I want to try that out.

Shoulder Shaping

I'm doing the shoulder shaping on my sweater, so I can finally try it on. So far so good. It actually fits. It's so exciting! The cables on the sides look pretty good. too bad that the part that'll be a little hidden by my arm came out better looking than the more visible part. It's ok though, what I've done so far is good practice for the hood and sleeves.
