I've knit the body up to the armholes and am now working the back separately. The odd thing is that it only took me three days to knit the body, but I've already been working on the back for four days and I only have a couple of inches.
I owe it to the fact that with the stockinette body, I could knit and study at the same time, but now that I'm doing cables and patterning, I have to watch what I'm doing, which really decreases the amount of knitting time I get throughout the day.
This sweater is going to be fantastic though, and I think it'll survive anything. It will definitely be one I keep forever. Also, I'm still convinced that the color of the yarn knit up looks like watercolor painting.
Whoops, I have to run to dinner before a sectional, then rehearsal, then rehearsal, then a lecture on performance, then another rehearsal, and then practicing. (I have to keep reminding myself that I love doing what I do, otherwise I sometimes forget.)
