The main body of this CeCe sweater is knit to the point where neck shaping should begin. I'd like to make the body an inch or so longer but I'm not sure there's enough yarn. As there's no chance of getting more - it's mystery yarn that was donated to the community centre - I'd better pay attention now.
Just how much yarn will each of the 3/4 length sleeves take? The best way to find that out is to knit one of them, so that's what I'm doing. After the sleeves are done I figure I need about 75 gr for the neck and shoulders. If there's more than that, I'll add a bit more to the body.
It's a pretty little sweater and has knit up very quickly so far, but now I'm at the tricky part ... increasing while incorporating the increases into the lace pattern. That will also require my undivided attention, so I expect the rate of progress to slow dramatically. I'm hoping to finish sometime next week, but maybe that's unrealistic. My deadlines usually are.
