Canyonville progresses, slowly, but progresses. The body and sleeves are now joined for the raglan decreases headed to the neck. It's a lot more awkward to handle than individual pieces but easier to do the decreasing and stay in pattern. Hopefully the underarm decreases will leave me enough fabric around the arms. Time will tell and if it doesn't work - TINK or KNIT backwards back to the raglan join and then change it to a set in sleeve. Still like the Galway Highland Heather yarn on US#5. The fabric is tight and really shows the twisted stitch definition.

Sleeves might be too short but I can always add more ribbing. Next up? Don't know but would like to get back to the Oversize Panel Cardigan and start a small project for a change.

Odd winter. Our ground is close to bare of snow and the temps this past week have been in the upper 30s, low 40s. I detest knitting with cotton so it had better get cold again.
