I want to be a Machine

Okay, not really. That was Andy Warhol.

But I have finished a whole lot of sweater rather quickly. I'm actually 50% done with it now, having completed the front and back panels. They look kind of ugly now, but since you insisted, here are some pictures:

This one's the back panel, unblocked

And a closeup of the cables on the front

Okay, that picture didn't come out so well, but you get the idea. It all looks smaller than it should because it's curling underneath, but if it turns out not to fit me, I'm going to cry. The next task is to make some sleeves, which I'll probably start today. And then I need to make a collar and sew the whole thing together. The goal is to finish it before Christmas so it can make for some festive holiday attire. At this rate, it looks like I'm going to make it, hurray!
At least I have plenty time to work on it today since I was supposed to go home, but because of the killer snowstorm (which was over by the time I woke up) I stayed in Williamstown another day. I'll just head home tomorrow morning instead and with more completed sweater than if I'd left early.

I hope everyone else has/had a safe trip home for the holidays!

Cheers,

-Allie
