ella progress.

...(finally?!) yes! the end is near. I spent most of my knitting time today with a darning needle in my hand...seaming the sleeves and then setting them into the armholes. I am very pleased with my sleeve math; it did take me two tries, but it was worth the effort. the sleeves fit great.

ha! I added a note on my flickr page about the pill-like looking bits on the sweater...but now that I see the photo here, I'm pretty sure those bits are on the mirror, not my sweater. whew.
and wow, has it really been nearly two months since I started this project? yep, we began our KAL on january 20...and I've knitted about 4,000 yards of other projects since then. maybe that's why it's taking so long!

oops a bit blurry... but you can still see the fabulous colors in the ruffles!
monogamous knitting does pay off, though, and now all I have left is the button bands, weaving in about a bazillion ends (very thankful I didn't knit stripes - oh my!) and blocking.

I saw a weather forecast toward the end of last week that promised wet 60-degree temperatures this weekend and I was pumped to finish so I could wear. sadly, that forecast has disappeared and there is nothing much below 70 degrees in our near future. thank goodness the yarn shop is well air-conditioned. because I will be wearing this once it's finsihed!

Oh my gosh that is gorgeous! I hope you get a couple of chilly days soon so you can wear it! It' might even be worth sweating a few hours just to show it off:-)

Beautiful! I love the color and length! I think it'd be super cute with denim or black skinnies!
