Hello knitters! My apologies for being out of touch; work is to blame. You know when people say "I am so busy at work.. etc etc" as an excuse for not having enough time? I used to think that this was a convenient way of getting out of things, but not really valid. Its possible I may have been mistaken. possible. Anyway, one deadline met (mostly!), who knows how many to go, and the knitting goes on.
Check out how the diamond pattern ends right at the collar on the front! It took some knitting trickery to get this to happen. After finishing the front the first time, I noticed the shoulder shaping started a inch or two higher than the back, so took that opportunity to rip back a few rows and line up the front collar with the top of diamond.
The collar is in progress, to be followed shortly by all sorts of seaming.
