Finished Back

Thanks to some help from the good people at The Naked Sheep Shop, I finished the back portion of my sweater this morning! I was a bit confused by my pattern instructions until I realized that I needed to work up one side of the neck and then the other. So, I learned how to decrease, how to add yarn to a knitted row and the answer to the mysterious "turn the work" question. I started this back piece on 11/19. In 17 days, I knitted 25 inches of length and 24 inches of width. There are a few "tails" I need to weave in but I'm excited to have completed this portion. Hurray! Here's another picture of the neck shaping. PS - Mom & Dad, if you click on the picture you'll get a bigger picture to view.
