Postcard from Sleeve Island: Wish you were here!

One sleeve down, one to go. Since my blocking board won't hold all the sweater pieces, I'm now blocking the body pieces in preparation for seaming.

The end is so near I can taste it. With any luck, this will be in the FO pile by next week. However, I'm not particularly looking forward to zipper installation, considering the trouble others have had. Please think good thoughts for me.

Looking beautiful--good luck with the zipper! Did you knit the lovely Aran tablecloth under the blocking board?

That's a brilliant idea, to block while knitting the last piece--that will make all the last parts go that much quicker! You're SO CLOSE!

Your picture has convinced me to start saving my $$ for that blocking board!

That is brilliant of you to start blocking the pieces that are complete now, but what is that gorgeous knitted item peeking out from under the blocking board?

Holy crap! That looks like a picture postcard from the Isle of Beautiful Knitting.

Wish I was there...
