Making decent progress on the two front panels. The pattern has me repeating as I'm doing until I'm 8 rows before where the arm shaping took place on the back panel - so I still have a little ways before I have to change things up. Man, those sides really roll up before this stuff gets blocked.
So glad I decided to do both panels at the same time. Will definitely be doing the sleeves this way.
On a related note,I find I've often stepped away from the knitting with the cable needle still propped above an ear, like a carpenter with a pencil. I wonder if any knitters ever get the top of their ear pierced twice (as people do with those long bar piercings), just to have a cable needle convenient at all times?
