Late start

I got a late start on my sweater (I started March 16th) but I may finish by the end of the month yet!

Here's my progress so far on Stephanie Japel's top down raglan pattern...

Progress on Lucky

Lucky raglan shaping finished

The yoke is knit with my own handspun:

handspun merino-tencel

and the body with Elann Peruvian wool. I am doing yarn overs at the raglan shaping for extra interest.

Here's to hoping I can finish!

Oh, your handspun is beautiful, I love it! It adds a lot of interest to the sweater. I definitely have to do something like that some day... Maybe I should plan it for next March Sweater Madness!

Your yarn looks gorgeous. I love green.

Looks really great. And such a good thing to do with handspun... accent in the visible locations without waste.
Are you going to add any more ares? Bands at wrists or bottom?

Yes! I think I am going to add bands at the cuffs. I don't think there's enough left to do one at the bottom though.
