Inching Toward the Hem

I’ve been knitting on and off on my top-down saddle shoulder sweater and was certain that I must be at the hem. But when I stretched out the stitches on a piece of string, I found that I still have 3″ to go on the body and a few inches for each sleeve.

I’m so close that this will become a priority so I might be able to wear it before the weather gets too warm. Once the body and sleeves are done, I’ll decide about the collar and send away for a perfectly matched zipper. Stay tuned.
