Angelina, all you need is sleeves!



I finished the front last night! Don't mind my ribbon, I'll pull it out when I need it for the sleeves. Now all I need to do is lace on the sleeves and then seam it up! Oh, blocking too. Should I block before I seam? I probably will, I'm just concerned about blocking it too big, or too small.

This cotton is so pretty, but I didn't wash my swatch. Okay, I didn't have enough yarn for a swatch (remember I ran out a few times on my last sweater, so it wasn't an option to run out this time), so I know its all on me. It will be handwashed, and will be fine. I hope it doesn't run. I just jumped into this project without looking! Hah!

Hey. Its cotton. If it runs horribly, I'll dye it black.
