I am at a turning point in the short-sleeved sweater that I am making for my mom. I thought my fingers were going to cramp last night as I did the last few rows. There is an 8-stitch increase per right side row and the last row had 302 stitches. I had to stop and do some flexing exercises every now and then. I thought I'd post this photo before I joined the front panels and the back panel. I'll do the armholes after adding another 7" to the bottom, which will include a couple inches of ribbed stitch like the neck. The arms will have the same rib stitch. I am really proud of the progress so far. I am learning so much and becoming more adept at reading patterns. Other people's thoughts, directions, and abbreviations are really challenging sometimes! I'm sure I am preaching to the choir on that one.
