I've finished the back of my Dreamy Turtleneck. The other sweaters I've done have been with worsted or bulky yarn so knitting this with DK yarn on size 5 needles seems like it's taken forever. In reality, it was only a week of working on it every evening. It probably would have taken longer if I'd knit it flat. The pattern calls for worsted on size 7's but with the close fitting shape, I really like how the DK is working up. I love the shape of the pattern. I'm concerned about getting the adapted sleevecap to fit into the armholes but so far, it's been smooth. I measured it, and the measurements are exactly what I wanted.
I learned a new technique! I heard that short row shaping instead of binding off at the shoulders will reduce bulk so I set out to figure it out. It was really simple. Now the stitches are on holders, waiting for the 3-needle bind off.
