I've separated the fronts from the back! I'm working on the back now, but I'm more than halfway done with it at this point. I'm also into the final stitch pattern for the body. I feel like I'm actually getting something done on it at this point and I realized that for some reason, top down sweaters seem to go faster to me than bottom up. Realistically, there's no difference because there are the same amount of stitches either way, right? But for some reason, working top down feels faster.
On the other hand, it's not like I'll be wearing this anytime in the next 3 months, so it's not really a race.
