My current work in progress:

Margaret Tudor, by Alice Starmore, knit from Frangipani Guernsey 5-ply in the Olive colorway, using 2.75mm needles.

Sleeve Start!

I mention how labor-intensive this project is?

I’ve finished all the “major” pieces of the body, and started on a sleeve piece.

Each sleeve consists of three pieces: two sides, and a center panel with an openwork pattern. This is the first of four sleeve side pieces. Once the side pieces are done, all that remains are four openwork panels, one each for the sleeves and for the front and back. Plus all the sewing, neckband, cuffs, and bottom band.

Yeah, that’s all.

You can see that Loki is exhausted at the mere thought of it all.
