Here you can see my first attempt at the collar. I neglected to accomodate the bottom of the V-neck. Too bad, because it had a nice clean edge for seaming...
And this is the new version, with increases added sloppily onto the end of the ribbing. The method I used for seaming this hides that edge, but it's extremely bulky. I'm hoping it blocks a bit smoother, but I'm not going to cry if it looks as bad as it does now. I still like the overall effect.
Now that I have the first shoulder seam done and know it will work well enough, I can finish the second sleeve. I'm already a fifth of the way into the sleeve cap, so I am hoping to have a new sweater by next week! This weekend promises to be pretty full, though, so I will have to see if I can squeeze the sweater in somewhere, probably by lamplight.
