Do you see that? Do you know what that means? It’s true – I have reached the underarm! The moment I was convinced would never arrive is finally here. I have achieved underarm shaping on the back piece. THE END IS IN SIGHT PEOPLE! After this, one sleeve remains – which seems like absolutely no big deal after the desolation of the back. And then seaming it up and knitting the hex border and that part will be fun.
A number of you asked what is a Regents test after I mentioned that D#2 took the last of hers. Truth be told they are something of a mystery to me as well. I grew up in PA and had never heard of them until I moved to NY. Here is what Wikipedia has to say. I would summarize by saying that they are subject tests given by the state and a student cannot graduate without passing them. Depending on the courses taken, they begin in the 9th grade and end in either the junior or senior year. D#2 just finished her junior year and took the very last of her Regents exams which was physics. whew. After I finish this post, I am going to plan a three day trip to visit colleges with her.
