It's simple knitting, no colour work, no cables, no lace just round after round of knitting to make a warm, comfy sweater. I know some Knitters dread endless rounds of mindless knitting but I love it. So, after a week and a half of knitting here it is all squished onto one long circular needle.
It always surprises me how big (sigh....) the sweater looks once the stitches are spread out onto 3 circular needles so it can be tried on to see if it fits.
It appears that it does. I have been modifying the pattern as I have been knitting to make it more fitted. So far so good.
