Leben ist kein Ponyhof aber das leben ist ein Alpakahof.
So I finished the front last night (shown against the back):
Next come the sleeves, which are picked up at the armhole and worked from the top down. Before that, though, I have to do one of my least favorite knitting activities: shoulder seams. These are stepped seams in two different colors, so there isn't a lot of room for 'design elements'. Wish me luck.
