I was so giddy to find a knit-along for this sweater but I almost considered not joining just because it seems like whenever I join a knit-along, I never finish the sweater. However, I've given myself a deadline of October 20th to finish so you can hold me to that. I'm nearly finished with the back, just working on the last few inches and then I'll be ready for the final decreases and to bind off. I'm knitting it in Cascade 220 Superwash in color #855 which they call maroon but like Ron Weasley and as a fellow redhead, I'm not fond of the idea of maroon and I prefer to consider it more of a "brick" color. I love how it's turning out so far, the texture is yummy and the moss stitch really isn't as tedious as I thought it was going to be. Oh, and take a look at my needles in the picture - they've turned red from the yarn.
