Tearing along, sort of

I've finished the body, done in one piece, had help from my wonderful LYS and all of the KAL people here for the short-row shoulders and three needle bind off for the shoulders, thanks everyone for your tips and hints and help. Between here and Ravelry, it's been wonderful for a sweater virgin. I've now picked up and got about 6" on the hood, I want to be able to Kitchener graft it, but can't quite visualize how that's going to be, since I'm carrying the cables up the hood. I also cast on for the sleeves, doing both at once on one circular, have about 4" of the cuff ribbing done. This is exciting, I'm enjoying the process, the learning (see shoulders above, plus cabling without a cable needle, woo hoo!) and I'm really looking forward to having the sweater done to wear.

I carried the cables up, and kitchener grafted it together and it looks great! When you start the dec in the center, if you keep your patern, it decreases into a beautiful point. Then I made sure to knit halfway on the RS and I started the Kitchener in the back of the hood in the middle.
