excuse me, miss, excuse me...
but there is a Spider on your sweater

I am still working on what I call my Elven Sweater, Forrest Green, simple top down cardigan, should end down around my knees when done. I put a window pane stitch pattern (called Northern Lights by Barbara Walker) on just the sleeves. I also put a ruffled ribbing on the ends of the sleeves.

I also put the Spider Motif on the INSIDE of the hood, it is almost un-noticeable when the hood is up, you can see a bit of a dip where the body is, but nothing major.

the pic does not show the detail like I would prefer for ya all, but I M darned proud of it. Maybe if you look closely you can see the texture on the sleeves. The front reaches all the way across my chest, the back has a bit of a gap, I might make a pleat at the back to thread lacing in to cinch it up.
am thinking about doing a split ribbing for the pleat, with a K2T YO for the lacing holes

I cannot wait tol it is done and I can block it out

Great spidy. You have a long way to go to get to your knees. That will be really niffy.
