Another progress pic...

I just joined my 3rd skein.  I have a little less than 2" to go before I start the neck shaping.  Its moving faster than I had expected.

By the way, those looking for 3mm needles...  Knitpicks' classic circulars in size US2 are 3mm.

is anyone adding any waist shaping? I think i'm going to because when i tried on my 3 inches of thermal i held it around my waist and bust and its just too loose, i think i'll decrease slowly taking off 2 of the pattern blocks

I'm in the process of casting on - and am definately going to add shaping!!!!(4.5 inch diff between hips and bust).

I think i worked out to decrease 4 stitches every 16 rows (doing the decrease on the knit-only rows) x 8 times. Its going to go, knit to  halfway marker, k2tog, knit2, ssk, knit to end marker, repeat decreases, knit to end of row. The following purl/rib rows will just be worked in pattern with the stiches below showing what part of the pattern it should be.

I'm only an intermediate knitter, but me thinks this should work. Shocked
