Mmm, Vanilla yarn ramen! These took a little bath last night and are now ready to become border stitches of Blanche-Neige. I'm going to attempt to start one border tonight. I suspect I have more yarn than I think I do, and I certainly feel more confident with this extra yarn. I figure it can't hurt to just start the knitting and see how far I can get with what I have. If I run out, I'm only back where I thought I was.
I blocked the second sleeve last night and now all the pieces are ready for finishing. Here's a semi-aerial view of the sweater as she is now (apologies for the not-so-good picture; I took it standing on my bed and holding the camera over my head to get it all in):
If you look carefully, you can see my toes there are the bottom! And is it just me, or do the arms look almost as big at the back? Good thing I know that when this gets sewn up, it actually looks like a garment.
Finally, remember this post when I was all-sock-yarn-all-the-time? Well take a gander at what arrived on Saturday. Oooh. Ahhh. I've already cast on for the first pair for J (Gentleman's Plain Winter Sock in that gray shade you see at the top). I started it Saturday afternoon and already have about 6 inches done on the leg.
