Now where was I, again?
The Fearless Fair Isle is seven rows away from the front neck shaping! It's hard to tell that I did anything compared to the last picture, but I promise there was progress made. (Lorraine made me do it - she made me feel guilty about leaving my Fair Isle alone for so long)
The sweatshirt jacket - I got the additional fiber Saturday afternoon and spun up about an ounce yesterday. It is a very close match but a bit darker than the existing stuff. Not a problem, I've got a plan.... ;-)
The pattern changes where the body divides at the armhole (which is where I am now). I'll start with the new fiber at that point. The leftover old fiber will be used for the pockets and maybe the bottom of the sleeves and the collar, depending on how far I can make it stretch. There will be narrow bands of the lilac shetland between the color changes.
BTW - Black Welsh Mountain combed top is very nice to work with - it spun up very smoothly, although I may have made this skein a tad bulkier than I needed.
Speaking of that new project... I'm enjoying this sock. It's a simple k/p pattern but you still need to pay attention, especially at the leg shaping. This will be strictly a traveling project though - I need to concentrate at-home knitting time on my sweaters (and that poor neglected shawl).
