Emmaline's Sweater

I just wanted to post an update on my progress with Emmaline's sweater. This project has been a labour of love. I haven't been too overly excited about this project, which I believe is mainly caused by the fact that I am knitting it very tightly. I wish it would have occurred to me to just go down a needle size. Blast my flakiness!!

Well, I have finished the two sleeves, and have gotten about as far as I can go on the back before knitting up the hoodie. Now I am knitting up the front 'til it is the same length of the back. I am soooo close to being done with this project, and I shall be soooo glad when I am, as it has been a burden on my shoulders.

So far the yarn has held up really well, but I have noticed that some of the fibers tend to come off and stick to my hands. I think that is mainly caused, though, by how tightly I am having to hold the yarn.
