WIP: Sapphire Raglan Sweater
OK, this is my first progress pic of the raglan sweater.

I know in the pic it looks like one sleeve is coming out longer than the other but that's just a combination of how I had it on and that shorter edge was rolled a bit more, they're actually the exact same length.

I think it's coming along reasonably ok for my first attempt at one.


Ignore my tacky shower curtain

It looks great, Mason!! You'll have to take it off the needles or use two long ones when you separate for the sleeves though.

More than reasonably ok! It looks great and I like the shower curtain! Isn't it exciting to see a sweater come together like that? After I made my first sweater, my daughter commented " Wow, it looks like a real sweater" LOL
