Sweater almost complete

Sorry I haven't updated on the pieces of the sweater but I have been doing other things I had pulled out the back and re knit it because it was a bit tight in my opinion, I changed the pattern too this ones a drop shoulder, I have knitted all the other pieces and done the neck band so it is nearly done I will show a picture of the finished sweater (hopefully) but I really will try and show the next sweater from begging to end. It was just with it coming up to Easter when I started it I didn't have much time with family stuff but never mind. Oh by the way after saying I was going to do it all plain I decided to put a cables down the front and I used a nine stitch braid cable down the center that I found on Susan's blog.

Back finished










New sweater

Yesterday I decided to buy some yarn from hobby craft I bought wendy mode 50% acrylic and 50% pure merino and it was only £1.99 for a 100g ball so I thought I'm getting someof that, I picked up 700g I thought that would be adequate for a sweater. The sweater is in just plain stocking stitch I was going to do tuck stitch or cables but I didn't bother as I thought it may not of stood out as well in the baby blue, any way heres a picture of the yarn ball and the sweater back in progress.
