NaKniSweMo Day 14 - Japan Sleeves Progress

I am so happy, I am starting to see this sweater look like something other than lace panels.

I completed the lace today.  

The pattern said to lightly block it, so I opted for the steam technique.  Here is a picture of one sleeve blocked vs. unblocked.

Here are both pieces blocked.

I had to pick up stitches along the edge and add "neck" stitches in between. 

After picking up stitches, I started knitting stripes with the Dirty Panther colorway. 

This is the back of the sweater.  I'm happy with my progress today. I am in stockinette city, so this should be moving along pretty fast, even though the yarn is in fingering weight.
