The front and back of the Illusion pullover are both finished. I have joined the shoulders with a three needle bind off, and I have worked the back neckband - this is done in two parts, as extensions from the front. I am not going to seam this as the pattern says, I am instead going to graft the two ends together. It does seem to me that with thicker yarns, one must be more careful about finishing.
However, I may now have a slight problem. I now have six skeins of yarn left out of the original seventeen prescribed by the pattern, plus some oddments, and I am feeling distinctly uneasy about this. Usually I buy an extra skein, just in case. But with this yarn, seventeen skeins was all that there was in stock, so I have no margin for error here.
Will I be able to get a sleeve done with three skeins of yarn?
