I've been working on this sweater for...well, it seems like forever...4 months. I cast-on in October, and finished yesterday. It didn't really help that I ran out of the main color, then had to re-do the sleeve cast-offs three times before I finally settled on 3x1 ribbing, and I re-knit the last 6 inches of the body ribbing from 2x2 to 3x1 ribbing to match the sleeves. I'm still not completely happy with the neck, but it also has not been blocked yet. I'm hoping it will all work out in the end.
