Knitting the second half was quite uneventful, except from when our pug caught hold of the yarn and ran away with it. She loves yarn and strings, and will never run as fast as when she has gotten hold of a forbidden one. The scarf luckily did not suffer any damages.
Now...what shall I knit? Right now I feel that I would love to start with the Slink, but I think that I will put it off for just a little while. I will try to get some more done first on an embroidered piece I've been working on forever and maybe knit a pair of socks for my husband from some yarn in my stash. (I know, I'm spoiling him rotten.)
See you later!

I then went on to weave in some yarn ends and then (Ta-da!) removed the cast-on row (I've never done that before) and picked up the stitches and went on knitting. Everything went fine, but I must not forget to weave in the yarn ends before I reach the other end and start closing it up.

On the Left Side Back to Front part, the pattern read: "k to and including st wrapped on prev RS row, m1 between wraps". So, I emailed Jennnifer about it and this was her reply:
"to your question… yes it’s tricky, so no worries.
'k to and including st wrapped on prev RS row' means exactly that, knit up to the wrapped stitch and knit the wrapped stitch too (but not the wrap).
Now you’ve knit the wrapped stitch from prev RS row, and the next stitch on the left needle will have been wrapped in the previous (center back) SECTION. The next wrapped stitch looks like a mirror of the one you just knit, wrap coming from the left, so the wrap from prev row is on your right, and the wrap from prev section is on your left. BETWEEN these wraps, m1. So what you said: m1 after knitting the wrapped stitch is correct.
In this section, I never ask you to pick up or m1 in a wrap (looks sloppy, I tried it), or to hide a wrap."

I brought my Domiknitrix book around to the café. I believe everybody there had a look in it and were amazed at the Devil and the Mohawk etc. Some people noted the name of the book and the address of the web site.

So far one sleeve and the pocket welts are done.
But those alone do not a coat make.
I cannot wait until it's done but it's pretty hard work knitting bulky wool on smaller needles. Especially when you're working with 150 stitch rows.
And it's not really doable on hot summer days, but June usually offers rain and coolness here in Copenhagen, and I am now close to or at least moving towards the middle.
And I'm terribly excited, even if photos lend little to be excited about.
I'm using a delicious creamy wool with the simple name "Natur Uld".
Unfortunately the selection here is rather limited in the bulky department.

Got the sleeves done for now. I'm going to wait and finish the rest before I do anymore on the sleeves. 1) I don't know how long I want them yet and 2) If I don't have enough yarn I can decide to just stop where they are or get more. I always like options. :)
One side is bunched up because it's on the smallest Denise cable.
