The answer: quite a bit, and it looks lovely and feels incredibly soft
. . . but it's pretty tiny for a wrap. On further reflection I realize that what I have made is a shawlette.
|Totally covers your shoulders|
|But don't try to fasten it in front|
|The front's nearly done, too.|
Continuous Cables, too, and I love the wayMelissa Leapman designs and combines cables. The necks, not so much, but I think now that I've had two necks go awry I'm thinking it might have something to do with the sweater design. Yes, beginnings and endings are always the trickiest part.
A little more detail: I knitted both sleeves at once, and stopped around where I thought the saddle would start. Then I knitted the back, and then I knitted the front way with a 20-row frogging session when I misremembered the armhole shaping point. Then, I went back to the sleeves, bound off, and started the piecing together, at which point I found that the back was about 10 rows too short. Knowing that, I unbound the binding off for the back and am adding those rows, then I'll do both sleeve saddles, sewing one down as I go so that I get the correct length, and then I'll fix the front.
Oh yeah, totally almost done.
