Just the button bands and general tidying up. There's about 2" of rolled fabric in the front to be dealt with. Edging, tuck in the ends, find a fastener for the front ...
Oh, and find some way to magically make the arms 4 or 5" longer.
I figure I have two choices; either pick-up-and-knit from the medium-purple cuff down a few inches ... or steek the sleeve cuffs, snip them off, pick-up-and-knit from the dark purple part of the sleeve, then re-attach the colorful sleeve end.
What do you, the viewers at home, think?
A: Knit 4 more inches of medium-purple seed stitch border on the bottom of the sleeve cuffs
B: Steek the sleeve cuffs, snip them off, knit more dark purple, re-attach cuffs.
I honestly thought I'd be working on this all winter. Once I saw how close I was to being done, I promptly looked for new projects.
Don't worry, the finished product won't have peppercorn eyes.
And I've been spinning. I finished the lovely purple merino, but I don't know how much there is of it.
It's lovely! I'm very happy with it. I think it will have to be a shawl. Something that won't get pulled or tugged too much, because I spun the merino very lightly.
I wanted a big fluffy warm effect.
More of the mixed fiber ... very itchy stuff. Don't know what I'll do with this, but it won't be something worn next to the skin!
And I put my plastic tree up.
I don't like a lot of decorations, as you can see. I like just white lights and a few red splotches.
I crocheted the white garland thing years ago. And over the years I've knitted or crocheted little things to put on it...
It isn't very sophisticated, but I am frugal, and I have a lot of yarn.
