Progress

The sleeves are set:

There are some wonky spots, but they're mostly under the arms, and it was the best I could do. It was difficult to match up the stripes and make a nice seam with yarn that didn't match. I started out with the pink yarn, but realized that the red would blend better with all of the colors it would run into on the sleeve seams.

The sides should be relatively easy and straightforward. It's the angles on the sleeves that are tricky.

Beth I think it looks marvelous! You would never know by looking at what a great job you did how many troubles you had with the yarn. Great Job!!

It looks really good. Very fun, very impressive and hopefully worth all the yarn-angst that it caused!

Awesome colors! I think you deserve a frozen custard from
Ted Drews. Is that the one on Watson Road? I lived in St. Louis approximately 20 years ago, and I visit about once or twice a year.
