I have one sleeve done, one sleeve 2/3 to bind off, and body shaping done.
I just started knitting last spring and knitted all three sons and husband wool socks. The other night I happened to overhear middle son telling his younger brother how to hand wash his wool socks! Middle son kept asking me to show him how to knit and I initially ignored his request. Finally, this winter, I showed him how to cast on and the knit stitch. He says he understands why people like to knit. He believes I was holding out on him in teaching him; that I should have taught him how to knit years ago. He is making a nineteen striped Harry Potter scarf in the round. His stitches are even! Youngest wanted his own but separate project. He learned to crochet and is making a vertically striped scarf that alternates rows of double crochet with rows of back post double crochet.
I was pleased with the floats on the Colorwork by just occasionally stretching out the stitches in the right needle so the floats wouldn't be too tight. But loved learning about turning the work inside so the floats travel along the outside perimeter. Such a fun technique.
I have enjoyed the pattern's shaping and Colorwork and so pleased with the yarn.
