Tubey Progress

I have almost finished the body on this sucker. I bound off about an inch too soon so I'm picking it off and hopefully taking care of it today. I've also added a bit of waist shaping and short rows since everyone has commented on how much this pattern stretches with wear.
The downside of that is thst I for some reason, unknown even to myself at this point, decided to seam together the shrug part and the tube part before I was done with either. So this has made the waist shaped areas line up with one on my back and one on my front. so that needs to be picked off too. This is a really simple and quick pattern, I've just made it as complicated as possible, blah.

Congratulations Grace! Send me your address (alexislxs at
Her guess of 85 inches was the closest. The actual length? 92.5". I still have a little yarn left over, too.

Thanks for playing!
