Nearly a sweater

Ohhhh, so close! I figure there's another 10 hours left in Big Project Small Needles, mostly because I'm so slow at running in ends and - bonus! - I'm learning some more new techniques in these last finishing stages.

In fact, I bet I've learned more knitting this project than I would have in any workshop. It's been a really rewarding experience and I can highly recommend this pattern when the actual book comes out.

But to get specific: yes, all the individual pieces are knit and stitched together. I'm just doing the finishing up now, extra bits that are knit on after the assemblage, and those ends, and so forth. Because I don't want to get too specific about the finishing itself I will just say I'm about this far along:

Isn't that just agony, being so nearly done? I'm hoping to run in the last end before the end of Friday so I can block it on Saturday. I might even do a rare Saturday posting if that's the case. I mean, you gotta celebrate a thing like that!
