I've finished the back of Metro and the shoulders are joined. The front collar is sitting on stitch holders waiting to be finished and sewn down along the back neck, but I'll probably finish it last. Next I'll do the sleeves. I did try it on once I got the shoulders bound off together and it fits just like I wanted it to. (It's nice to see that it's going to fit the way I was hoping for. Some things don't.) We've even had a cold front come through this weekend (highs are to be in the high 70's to low 80's this week) so I might actually get to wear it soon!

Someone was asking about the color of my Metro last time I posted about it. The yarn is black and if I had to be specific, I'd say it's a cool black. It does have alpaca in it which tends to catch the light more than wool does, and this makes it a bit easier to photograph than it would otherwise be. Of course, I also tweak the colors in the photo a bit so you can see the details of the sweater in the photos. In today's picture, for instance, I lightened the whole thing, which left the background (my carpet) overexposed but at least you can see the details of the knitting. I'm working under the assumption that the majority of you are here for the knitting, not the carpet.

I'm off now - got to get groceries, run errands and all the other things that have to be done on Mondays!
