I am a little ridiculously happy with how this sweater is going. At this point, I still need to knit the sleeves (as well as decide how long I want them to be) and the neckband edging, but hey, the body is DONE. It's so satisfying to finish binding off the hem of a top-down sweater, try it on, and find that it fits just the way you wanted it to.
This is the sweater version of the cardigan I finished a couple of weeks ago. That one was knit with two colors of Sundara sock yarn, this one is knit with just one color of Sundara Fingering Silky Merino. Both yarns are the same weight, and I'm using the same needle size, so this one is serving to kind of help me test the pattern notes (such as they were) I took for the first one.
Obviously the two are going to look quite different when they're finished -- this one will have a lace edging, and the sleeves will be different -- but the basic numbers and the basic shape are all the same. I think I see more variations on this theme in my future.
