Salina progress!

Yes, this is actually going quite well! I'm bringing Salina along with me when I go to work, so I have at least 42 uninterrupted minutes of knitting every day on the subway. And as you can see it pays off! I'm going to have to check, but I think I've finished the last increase on the front, and I'm totally excited about reaching the front opening. Yeah - that's a severely dorky thing to say. And as you can see in the picture I have a few rows to go...

I've looked at pictures of other Salinas, as well as the pics in the book, and I have to say that I think the sleeves are a bit too wide for my taste. I'm thinking of making them slightly tighter, and to compensate for the smaller number of stitches when reaching the top of the sleeve I think I could just make the decreases fewer and spread them out. The decreases won't align with those on the front and back, but I don't think it will show with these tiny little stitches and tweedy yarn.

Secret Pal - look, I'm using the bag from the Simply Knitting you sent me! I thought it was a bit too much with the yarnprint and all, but it keeps my needles from poking holes in things, and that's always a good thing.

Your Salina is looking georgeous! Good job I picked up your extra skein today, looks like you are motoring through!

I have the same bag from "Simply Knitting" and, like you was not overwhelmed by it - mine is still sitting on my knitting shelves at home. Sometimes their free gifts are better than others.

Got everything for your second parel ready, now just need to post...!
