Progress!

I’ve reached the armhole shaping on both sweater pieces! That means pictures! First, the fisherman’s rib sweater — which I’ve shown before, and isn’t very interesting to look at, so I tried to jazz up the picture a little by placing the piece in its natural habitat, snow:

It’s another cold, bright day here — pretty to look at, though a little challenging to be out in.

Next, here’s the back of the grey sweater for Mark. It’s a raglan, so from now on it’s all decreasing. I love raglans. They make me feel like I’m progressing faster than I am.

And here’s a close-up of the pattern (Fancy Chevron Stitch):

Of course, I’ve still got a long way to go on both projects — but they’re moving along. There’s still a slim chance I could get my dad’s sweater done in time for him to wear it once or twice this year… in Ottawa… maybe.

I love that chevron pattern! Glad to see the progress on the sweaters. It’s inspiring me to get working on some of my more tedious projects. Even the tedious ones look so nice once there’s a big part done!
