I've returned from my vacation...boo...but was able to complete the entire back piece of my husband's sweater!
It took almost 3 full skeins of Wool-Ease...almost 600 yards...all in the darker gray!
It measures 30 inches long and 28 inches wide at the widest part.
Here's a pic of it. I had to use some of my kitchen knives to hold down the edges.
Either tonight or tomorrow evening, I'll cast on (128 stitches!) for the bottom ribbing for the front piece. At least the front is broken up a bit (after 20 inches!) with the light gray split square in the top half.
I would really love to finish this before winter ends, so my husband could at least wear it a couple of times, but I'm not so sure if that's going to happen.
