So Far So Good

I'm ready to join sleeves to body tonight!
The idea that those ends will be cut away in the steeking is thrilling!

My floats are lovely and stretchy! (I think the two handed knitting is helping with this!)
I'm pairing the large body with the medium sleeves - playing around with gauge to make the body closer to the size I want without messing with the number of stitches and therefore the pattern.

I also decided to wait until I'm past (above) the bust area to work the decrease row that makes for the A line shaping described in the pattern. (Its very slight in any case so I don't think I will get into too much trouble - fingers crossed.) I'm aiming for zero ease across the bust.

All the way through all three pieces the row gauge and finished length has been right on - I'm clinging to this fact in the hopes it is indicative of a good fit once everything's finished!

I hope you had a good weekend and like I am, you are looking forward to a week of good knitting to come! Thanks for dropping by!
