I've gotten to the end of the body, but it doesn't really look like it. All the little pieces of yarn holding live stitches don't really help with the finished look. Lots of decreases have definitely helped with making the fabric take shape but I'm still looking for a nice clean bind off. Hmm... maybe if I just fold it up nicely.
A little bit better but not quite. I guess I'll just have to wait till the sleeves are finished and I can stitch it all together. Maybe I'll just content myself with blocking this section or put it in a drawer where I can't see all the messy ends.
Better yet I'll just keep looking at the tulips and count the body as finished till I can really do some finishing.
