One thing I hate about working with a mid-row color change is how shitty stitches tend to look. Obviously from a fair distance, you can't even really tell, but I can and I hate! HATE! Hate ittt! How hard is it to make something perfect?! Obviously pretty hard.
I'm 78 rows in, not much further to go. I hope to finish it by the end of the weekend, get the sleeves done in two days, seam the last day and send it off for a marvelous birthday gift. Wish me lots and lots of luck!
