On the Needles Sept. 4, 2015

I think that this has to be some kind of a record - two "On the Needles" reports in 2 weeks!
I REALLY love this little sweater!  Now that I've got the pattern figured out, I'm on a roll.  I don't have a lot of time to knit these days, between canning, and quilting and visiting my dad a few times a week, but I've managed to sneak in a few minutes here and there.  This is where I've left off - sorry about the shadow.
I'm finally working on the (right) bodice section.  The little puckery spot looks a bit odd, but it's knit according to the instructions...
I just realized that I could be knitting the left side at the same time - that way, I'm sure to get the shaping for the neck and shoulders to match.  When I get to the decrease point on the left side, I'll see if it's as apparent as the right side - and if so, I may leave it as is, or try to find a less obvious decrease.
So, now that I've got this much done, I'm eager to see the set completed - and I'm hoping to be at that point by next Friday's report deadline!  (I'd cross my fingers, but it will be a little tricky to knit that way...!)
