1/2 a sleeve

well, the tomten photo isn't quite up-to-date, but it does show the hood and the beginning of my first sleeve. I started knitting together the last stitch of the sleeve with a body stitch, but it finally became too cumbersome, and i wasn't delighted with the way it looked, so i decided i'd just knit back and forth and deal with a little seaming at the end.

my shoulder has been troubling me, so i've mostly worked on smaller projects and left the Tomten patiently awaiting me to finish it. i hope to have more progress to show you soon.
