I said before I was going to finish my sweater at the end of last week, and I did it! The seaming actually went pretty smoothly. I took in a little more at the sides to help the fit, but I'm pretty happy with it.
Big thanks to Tyler for taking the photos, it's a hard task to photograph quite possibly the least photogenic person ever, and having that person be a perfectionist photographer. He kept saying "your skin looks so white, is that ok?" The photos were even a bit underexposed. I am really that pale.
I can take knitting my first sweater off my list. Next up, socks.
