About 75% Done

I decided to finish my sweater by my birthday, which is tomorrow. I've been working on the hourglass like a madwoman! I already attached the first sleeve, and the second sleeve is up to the increases already. I just need to finish the sleeve and the yoke by tomorrow, and I think I have a pretty good chance.

By the way, this yarn is a dream to work with. I have exactly 800 yards to work with, and I'm making the small. I know people have run out of yarn, and I can get an extra skein or two if necessary. So far it doesn't seem like I'll run out though. As a precaution, I'm doing rib instead of turning round on the edges, which saves me 6 rows on the bottom edge, neck edge, and both sleeves.

I love how your stripes are working out. Could you post a pic that shows the ribbing on bottom edge, sleeves, and neckline? I'm curious how the hourglass looks in rib.

You can see the ribbing on the sleeves and bottom edge in the second picture. I can post a picture of the neckline ribbing once I finish.
