Stormy Sky II update

Well, things are moving along! I was able to get quite a bit of the sleeves done during a class I took the first week in February.

The first photo shows the more fitted version in wool (soon to be a cropped cardi) on top of the original Bamboo version. The Bamboo was oversized XL, the wool is a bit more fitted L. Also the Bamboo tends to stretch some with wear (and goes back to size when washed).

The second photo shows the sleeves in progress. I knit the cuffs separately and then joined and am working in the round-- two sleeves at once, one set of yarn. At the end, I will cut the steeks and sew an underarm seam. This is pretty sticky wool, so I'm not sure how much sewing I really "have" to do.

So the end is really in sight!

Aren't they gorgeous? Valentine's flowers are a tradition. From my hubby. In the background some of my knitting book collection.
