The back is currently at 12.5 inches long. I have 4.25 inches left before starting to shape the armholes. Hopefully next week this will look more like a sweater. I have about one more row and then I'll have to add the second skein.
I know this will block out a little bigger, but right now it's about 3 inches smaller than the schematic shows. My gauge is right on, but between the moss stitch and the cables, it's really pulling in. Since I don't want this tight on me, I'm going to do the armhole shaping based on the next size up. When I cast on the front, I'll cast on for that size. This should help account for the "girls" and give me a little more ease.
