Maaaahhhhh! The meatsheep is eating my hands!

Not really - I'm almost done with sleeve number one. The fabric, as I've said, isn't lovely, but the colors are really nice. I think you can see the Fassett influence in how the colors play out, too. I think it's got some nice cranberry/mountain laurel/granite/bark things going on, so it fits with the hiking motif I've been working on. The V's are sort of mountain-esque, or like the views on Mount Desert - the reflections on the mountains in the water and the trails of ships in the water. I think the variation of the colors goes well with the V's.
The front is a lace-up placket, sort of like a Guatemalan cotton sweater-shirt from the 80's. I think a couple more days and I can mail it off.
