Ixchel is moving right along! As I suspected, once the sleeve stitches were put off to the side, thing began progressing much more quickly.
I’m roughly halfway there on the body, then just have the sleeves to go. As you can see, there is a little bit of puckering on the increase row that I’m hoping will – say it with me now -“block right out!”
But I actually think it will. The fabric is pretty light, and the puckering is pretty gentle. I am enjoying seeing the pattern develop – the yarn colors are really lovely!
