Dark Blue Wallaby, part Two

As you can see, since starting this over the weekend, I have now finished both sleeves, and done the first 3 1/2 rows of the shoulders. In the sweater construction this is known as the yoke, and I have another 20 1/2 rows or so before I start knitting back and forth instead of around. At that point I will have started a center placket of garter stitch. After I finish the yoke and placket then I will just have the neck and hood left.

I am really enjoying how fast this sweater is moving - but that's what happens when you get a decently thick yarn and a kid who is still small (although he's getting bigger every day!). Hopefully you'll get to see a finished sweater sometime next week!
