I don't know how many hours were spent to get this far, because round after round after round of laceweight stockinette takes for frickin' ever!!! But I can finally say that the major hurdle of the body is knitted and done. The sleeves are now attached, the stripe pattern actually lines up (Huzzah!), and I'm ready to begin the raglan decreases to the neck.
The home stretch is in my grasp. :)
