Now—it's more that 2 inches away from the edge--(that white line)
So progress is being made. Not that I knit anything on the sock yesterday.
I repositioned the skirt (the background) —to show that it does, in fact, have a good deal of purplish pink—the socks are soft subtle color, the skirt is more faded still, but—a good enough match.
Meanwhile, I have also been working on this—a top down simple (patternless) top.
In a few more R's, I separate the sleeves and continue the body—and the sleeves will be short (or simple finished) depending on how much yarn is available.
The top looks like it long enough already—but my dress form is for modeling things—it's a jr size 6--(and I am not!)--It is recycled (it was free)
