Worked through one skein. Total length: 6.5 inches! I’m almost half way done with the back shaping. After this, I have about 4 more inches with arm hole shaping and then I’m done with the biggest piece!
I’m toying with the idea of knitting the cuffs, epaulets and belt halves at the same time. Well, not all six pieces at once but the cuffs at the same time, then the belts, etc. I’m thinking about casting for both pieces from 2 different skeins on the same needle. Might not save on time but possible save on frustration on having to knit the same thing *again*. I’d also get to try something new during a very mundane pattern.
