Sputtered progress

The raglan is back on track after some frogging. I didn't like the sleeve as first done and needed to wait to see Athena at my workshop. Of course, if I had read the directions completely OR looked at the many photos I had taken of the sample...... Even so, the original sleeve was too long for me. Ripping back let me work the decreases more quickly.

Then, someone else in class had completed her raglan and I really liked the neck ribbing she used. It was the Double Island Rib from the 365 Knitting Stitches perpetual calendar. It's on June 14th. I used it instead of the garter finish suggested. The lace is different, but I think it works.

So now I'm on the home stretch. 4 more inches of stockinette, then the lace bottom.
