My son is outgrowing his sweaters. So I thought it was a good time to practice on the knitting machine. I worked up most of the front and back panels. Except for the neck shaping. I'd like to do that by hand. And most of one sleeve. I'll also shape the cap of the sleeve by hand.
I'm going to add a motif to it. I could have done this as an intarsia project. But I don't have the leisure of long stretches of knit time right now. A portable project has a better chance of getting finished. Besides, a duplicate stitched design with a bit of added thickness is nice too.
