This weekend I did get some stealth knitting done, but I also got a big chunk of the Minimalist Cardi fronts worked on. I'm at least halfway up the armholes and I don't think it's going to be too much longer before I get the fronts finished. Then I have to sew up the shoulder seams and knit the front bands to the correct length to join them at the center back neck. Remember how I added back neck shaping? This also adds to the circumference of the neckline which means I need to knit the front bands longer than the pattern calls for. I plan to measure it along the neckline as I go to make sure I get it right.
I'm really amazed at how little yarn I've used so far on this project - I used one ball of yarn for the back and while I'm knitting on two balls for the two fronts, I've still got about half of each yarn ball left. I don't know if I'll be able to get the whole sweater made out of 3 balls of yarn, but the sleeves aren't long (they're 3/4 length) so I think it's possible. I actually bought 5 skeins of yarn so I've got plenty of yarn left, just in case you were wondering.
