Arwen update

Wow, it's been so long since I've been in here that I almost forgot how to log on... anyway...

The knitting part is done.

Now comes the sewing up, and the "seamless grafting" of my cable panels... can't wait to see how that turns out. I'll settle for "nice looking seamed cable panels" if I can't work out perfect grafting in pattern (I'm reaching for my Montse Stanley right now). And of course, the sewing in of ends.
Then comes the singing and dancing, hysterically pleased with myself for actually making a sweater. A full sized adult sweater that I can wear, that I made myself, that is soooooo beautiful. I am a champion!

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Wish me luck with construction. I am trepidatious, and a little cautious with my optimism... but I hope to be back with pictures in a day or two.
