The last I posted about this sweater was ages ago. I have stuck this in my knit group bag and have been taking it to knit group where it is a fairly easy knit.
Progress has been made albeit slowly. I alternated the newly spun yarn with the old yarn since there was so much more purple and have been working on the sleeve.
The first sleeve is now to the point of the 1x1 ribbing for 2" and then it will be done so I can start on the second sleeve.
I was very careful to measure out yardage between the old and new yarn so I should have enough to finish the sweater.
I don't think the color matching is too obvious in comparison to the rest of the sweater.
