Whelp, it's all over but the blocking. The h-glass is finished, and I think I'm pretty happy with it. Here's a pre-blocking photo:
I'll post some modeled photos post-blocking, but first I have to say...
I would rather have ten hangnails, ride the F train at rush hour, clean up cat puke, and go to the OB-GYN ALL IN THE SAME DAY than have to do the finishing on this sweater again, in particular, the neckline. I'm a wimp, I know, and am exaggerating a bit, but I must say that stitching down the live stitches on the neckline for some reason was really unpleasant and TEDIOUS, and had me shouting the most offensive swear words all morning. I am so glad it's over now.
