One sleeve is done, and I’m quite pleased with it:

I’m glad I listened to all the niggling doubts about how the first iteration was turning out. This one feels and fits much better. Of course, the neck is still very sloppy, but the back insert and ribbing should fix that. Now that I’m done obsessing about the sleeve, I’ve started to worry about the sweater as a whole. I know it will fit; but will it flatter? It’s not going to be a very fitted sweater, with all the straight geometry created the fabric coming together in different angles, it can’t be — but will the fabric bunch together in odd places? I hope not! Time will tell.

The Fennec pullover is untouched and one Julia sock is done.

Aaand… I started another quilt! Red diagonal stripes seem to be a life theme right now.

      Thanks! The sweater is turning into quite the puzzle on good fit!
