Coming Together

I've caught up and moved forward with Skelf.  It's a lovely sweater, and quite frankly, I'm surprised how quickly it's knitting.  Here's the body, done last night:

Here it is, right side out:

See this tree?  Yep, I did it all without a cable needle.  How's that for you?

I've also started on the first sleeve, and although it's farther along than this picture, I thought you might like to see it as well.

I'm not all that worried about the uneven stitches - I've already straightened a few of them out.  The rest I figure will even out once I block it.  Looks pretty good, if you ask me.  I would love to finish both sleeves by the weekend, and then start on the yoke next week.  Realistically, I'm hoping to finish the first sleeve this week and next week, do the second sleeve and hopefully the yoke.  I think I can make it by the end of the month.  The sleeve is actually going pretty quickly.  I may have to increase the size of the sleeve, but that will be seen as I go.  I'm trying it on as I go, so hopefully I'll know and can do something about it before it's too late.  How is your knitting going?  Are you making good progress?

Beautiful! I am loving looking at everyone else's progress since I had to pause mine to learn about how to properly adjust fit. You are going to get it done and it is going to be amazing!
