I finished the body...

...then knit up about 1/2 a sleeve before deciding to have my recipient try it on. Wrong, wrong, wrong. The sleeve wasn't tapering down fast enough, and the neck! Oh the neck is too high. My last Aryan sweater the neck seemed too low, and thus I've over compensated.

I've ripped out the sleeve back to the starting point and will start again. When I finish the sleeves I'll be going back up to the neck and will try and unwind it down and then knit it back to a better dimension. That will be a bit experimental, as I've never unwound a garment from the beginning. However, I think I should be able to, why not? Better than ripping the entire thing out. Oh the hours, and hours I've spent on this thing already. I don't foresee this being done before Valentine's day at this rate.

I knew this sweater would take a long time...but it's a little frustrating that I'm still working on it. Hopefully, I will get it done for Christmas...I hope!

Here I am multi-tasking; knitting, administering a math lesson, and serving as a baby bed. The baby is quite cozy under the large, warm sweater-to-be.
