Spruce trunk

It seems like Blaster is just flying! I'm already into the body decreases. It helps that work is super light  around the holidays, and since Dave is off, I haven't been going into the office at all. The cold snap is helping too... not much to do bu sit and knit.
The yarn is mixing up quite nicely, and it's one of those yarns that changes drastically  with the light. Here you're seeing the more blue/teal properties. In sunlight, it much more green. At night, under my work lamp, it's more grey/turquoise.

I just hope it's going to place nice with  the lacework at the bottom edge.

Nice job! Sounds like the name of the colorway should be Chameleon.

We are lucky with modern dyes, natural dyes, and materials...way back, people didn't have much choice in colors.

I'm glad that work is light, it's a nice way to have to re-enter the "have to" after the fun of the holidays. Sounds like that and the weather is giving you a wonderful opportunity to knit up that sweater. It is knitting up just as beautifully as I thought! Enjoy! Looking forward to seeing it grow.

Goodness! You've gotten a lot done. This cold spell is good for knitting. My mojo seems to be creeping back after the holiday crazies.
