Timing was perfect because I had committed to knitting a marathon of scarves and had no knitting time for an un-cooperative, fair isle sweater.

Steek not yet cut, ends not yet tied in, here is my version of Elizabeth's fabulous sweater. It is LOVELY. It FITS. With short rows completed in the final contrast colour it is now fully co-operative and ready for steeking and i-cord bands.
