I received an order of KnitPicks Merlot Heather, Swish Superwash, only 8 skeins, for a different project. But when I saw the color, I knew what I wanted to do with it, and fortunately, a quick call to KnitPicks confirmed that more of the same dye lot was available - Whew!! It's on it's way to me, so I started the two sleeves yesterday (9/23). It's working up quickly, and holding my interest! So far, I'm sticking to the pattern -- but I will probably try to knit the back and fronts as one piece, eliminating the seaming. I'm looking forward to chatting with others who are currently working this, or those who have already finished it.
Here's what I have so far - many of my pictures will have one of 2 small boys in them. I am a babysitting grandma of 2-yr-old twins, and I can keep an eye on them better if they're in front of the camera!
