This is why I don't do more than one sweater a year. I hate knitting the body, that long, boring expance. I have really enjoyed working on this dress for my Zoe Gail. I know how I want the body but am still undecided about the details. Though, if you will notice the line of eyelets around the middle, I have decided to run an icord? crochet chain? ribbon? all around it. Short sleeves that only need the seed stitch trim, so she can wear it in the spring and summer. It's some more of that great, soft cotton. And just because I love doing raglan tops, fun! Other than that, I have a few ideas but nothing concrete on the embellishments. But first I have to finish this blasted body. At least it's all one piece so I don't have to make another when I finish. No, I think that is the worst thing about sweaters. having to do the second piece. I love the detail work, having to pay attention to it. Like being intimate with the knitting. Fortunately she's only going to be two, so I don't have far to go.
