I've been working on my Retreating Sweater some more.  I'm using two skeins of yarn at once to avoid any color weirdness issues with the yarn being handdyed.  I'm changing yarns at the right underarm on wrong side rows, twisting them together to avoid holes.  I think it's probably the same technique as intarsia, but I'm using the same color instead of changing colors.  The reason I'm doing the yarn change at the underarm instead of one of the front edges is because the front edges are being finished as I go, so there's no good place to hide the yarn changes there.  If I had to come back later and pick up for front bands, I would change yarns at the front edge.  One thing I've noticed about this project is that it is really a magnet for pet hair.  Having white critters, the dark red really shows off the fuzz.  I can tell the lint brush will be getting a workout!
