the knitting, it is done, maybe

I think I'md one with the knitting on Erik's sweater. I was afraid it was going to be incredibly huge, but it turns out he is incredibly huge. I have to weave in several thousand ends, of course, but I've at least kitchenered the underarms and am working on all those end

The only thing I'm not sure about is the neck. I did exactly what EZ suggested in the pattern guidelines and just knit a few rows in another color on smaller needles and turned that under. It looks slightly unfinished to me. I'm going to leave it as is for now but if I still don't like it when I'm closer to being done with all of the ends I will pick it out and add on a neck band of some sort. I need to go into Ravelry and see what kind of neck bands other people did. I do also think the neck could stand to be a touch smaller.

Okay, I'm probably going to pick out the neck and fix it, just not tonight.

    It's amazing when knitting for a large man. It just goes on and on. Congratulations. I think it looks nice in the picture without a lot of neckband because the shoulder detail is so nice. But that's just me.

    Thanks for the compliment and the input on the neck. I'm sort of torn. Everyone else on Ravelry seems to have done a ribbed neckband.
