Front and back

I’ve finished the back of the grey sweater:

The armholes seem remarkably long, but I’m trying not to worry. I’ve started a sleeve, to try to vary the knitting as much as possible.

I’ve also finished the front of my dad’s sweater, and I’ve attached the left shoulder to the back. I short-rowed the shoulder, instead of casting off, partly in order to be able to use a three-needle bindoff to join the shoulders. I just wanted to make sure it would all work, which is why I went ahead and joined the pieces, even though I still have the last sleeve to complete. The join isn’t as invisible as I would have liked, but at least it matches, stitch for stitch — with 1X1 ribbing that was my biggest concern.

In case you’re interested, here is a picture of the neckline.

I still haven’t quite finished the shawl, but I’m on the last repeat. By the end of the weekend, probably.

It’s warming up a bit, though now it’s grey, of course; Tigger still doesn’t want to go outside (or rather, he wants to go outside, but he wants it to be nice out first) and spends his days much like this:

Such a hard life he leads.

Those are some big-assed sweater pieces. You sure are patient!
