Yay! Progress!!!

OK, finally I’ve moved past the decision making and past a few trouble spots and I can see the top of a sweater beginning to emerge out of the yarn.  I decided to go with green since my favorite shirt is green.  My eyes are hazel and I always think wearing green makes them look, well, greener.  And I don’t know why I didn’t go with nicer yarn except that I’m cheap and there was a time crunch and this really is a neat green.  The Vanna yarn is called Olive, but it’s darker than that with a little bit of gold/yellow in there.  I really hope those yellow tones are supposed to be good for my pale/pink complexion.  I can’t remember the rules on colors.  Anyway, I think it’s going to look a little, or a lot, like a military sweater.  I can’t decide whether I should encourage that or make some adjustments to be more girlish.  Of course the original picture flares out into a dress sort of thing… I haven’t thought that far for my design yet.

Oh, and I’m at the big crucial point where I put the sleeve stitches on spare yarn and just work the body for the next day or two so body decisions come first, then sleeve decisions.
