Can you contain your excitement? Over the weekend, after carefully washing and blocking all the pieces of Oblique, and sewing them all up, I got one front band on. That's it. I do love this picture though, you can see the way the yarn just glows - I will definitely be using this yarn again (KnitPicks Andean Silk - this is Cream). Oh, and just in case anyone is curious, I don't bind off in pattern, in this case rib. I think it looks sloppy. I bind off purlwise - that way the bind off flips to the back and I think the edge looks neater. Just personal opinion, but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone was wondering.
Why didn't I get more done on finishing this sweater? Well, for the answer to that you'll have to check back tomorrow! Oh, the suspense...
