hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan

Finally. The body is done.
(Well – it’s not actually done, I still have to pick up 124080 neckline stitches and knit that, but I’m repressing for now.)
This doesn’t look like that much knitting, but it took forever to finish – laceweight yarn on 4mm needles feels phenomenal, and it’s knitting up into the most beautiful, gauzy fabric, but that took me a solid month to get through. (I have knit full-sized cabled aran cardigans in that amount of time. That is very slow.)
However, the point is not that. The point is that the body is done, and now I get to start the next big adventure for this sweater: the sleeves.
