Plodding along nicely

After my previous frustration, I'm in a very positive spot at the moment. Things are progressing swimmingly on my Sqaure Dance jumper.

I'm about half way through the raglan decreases:

I'm very pleased with how the pattern on the sleeves has melded into the body. Here's a close-up of the raglan decreases, if you can make them out:

Hopefully the neck won't be too wide at the end, I've a feeling it might. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it I guess!

Only 4 more days to get it finished, looks like it's going to be another last minute finish!

Not helped at all by my burning desire to cast on for a pair of these: Spiral Boot Socks (Ravlink). I have the same pink Reynolds Soft Sea Wool in my stash for ages specially for these. My desire now is coz of the faboolous knee high boots I got in the States recently. I desperately want to wear them on Christmas Day, but I know deep down I've no chance in hell of getting them done!

Ah well. Back to the jumper I go!

Good Knitting!

Wow, your jumper is nearly done. You are one quick knitter! Those decreases are very neat.

You could always make some leg warmers for your boots, couldn't you? They'd take less time, and still look fabulous.

You can do it! I have complete faith that you will fly through the final stitches and have a FO just in the nick of time!
