Getting there! I have turned the heel, so just knitting on the legs until I get tired of it or run out of yarn 🙂 Knitting with this yarn is making me so happy!
I got a start on the webbing on the second sleeve! But I have my classes Saturday and Sunday morning, so I’m not sure if I’ll have time to work on them before Monday. But even still, hopefully the second sleeve will be done by this time next week. Then on to the body!
