Get those sleeves done!

Now that I've finished the glove I think I'm ready to take out my next long-term UFO.

I stopped knitting this nearly two years ago, when I returned to England. I had finished the body and much of the sleeves, and then left it with dad in America to put it up in the yarn store as a large "swatch" example for the yarn (though I think it was actually in a plastic bag that whole time). This past Christmas I got it back, and I think I'm ready to finish it! I've already ripped out the not very nice looking sleeves, and so it's just a matter of reknitting the sleeves and knitting the collar.

The pattern is Twist and Shout from Knitty Fall 08. The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca D.K. Which means I'm going to be finishing yet another warm article of clothing in time for summer!
