A Quick Sweater Update

I have successfully completed the body of my sister’s sweater and have begun the right sleeve. Most of the body was done while watching a couple marathons of Say Yes to the Dress on Netflix.

Basically when changing colors you ignore the rib pattern established and just knit a row straight of the new color. It creates a garter ridge on the wrong side and a clean stripe on the right side.

 The one thing that concerns me now is that the sleeves seem super skinny. The shoulders are also throwing me off size-wise quite a bit as well.

I suppose I will have to wait and see what the shape of the sweater looks like after I put the button and collar band on.
