Girly-Man Sweater

Look! Actual proof that I knit (sometimes). This is the Manly Sweater from Stitch & Bitch. Appropriately re-named by Hellahelen as the "Girly Man Sweater". :)

It's *almost* done. I still need to seam up one of the arms. I hate seaming :(

And the neckline will need to be re-done. Melody pointed out that I should have bound off a few more of the stitches along the shoulder before casting on for the neckline. So I'll rip it back (for like the third time now) and hopefully it will start looking like a V neck, and not a... well... whatever it's doing right now.
And then, of course, I have to weave in all the ends. I think it's time for me to learn one of the knitting in ends as you go techniques. I tried the spit-splice, but I don't think I did it right. And the Russian Join just looks like too much effort (gotta go find a needle and all that!).
I intend to do some work on this today and tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have a picture of the finished sweater by the end of the week.

I love that color pink. And the neck doesn't look like a V-neck yet because it looks like a vagina.

You're really seriously demented with the pink! ;-) That will be a fantastic sweater if only you would finish it. Finishing is the price we pay to knit! Or something like that.
