Well, after a four day weekend, I have the back of Rosita up to the armhole shaping, and the front is half a repeat away from the same place. I'm almost at the point where I have to commit to the shaping. I want to see if I can figure out a way to make the decreases a little shallower while still ensuring the sleeve cap fits. I think I'll cut out pieces of muslin to match the schematics I'm shooting for, to see if it will work. Anyway, so the scary part of all of this is: you're looking at 30 hours of knitting. Realistically speaking, I think I have another 25 hours to finish the front and the back, and then probably another 25-30 for the sleeves. This is going to be a close one. I'm still thoroughly enjoying the knitting, though - although it's time consuming and tedious, the pattern doesn't get boring very fast!
