Thanks everyone! I've officially finished knitting the Ed part. In fact, I'm all the way up to the neck shaping. Tomorrow morning I'll try to get a good picture. I still have to tidy up some of the stitches, but even with the untidiness, I am so happy with how the image has turned out. After seeing it, my boyfriend asked where his Spike or Jet one is. haha

Now I just need to re-read the neck part of the pattern and hope I can follow it properly. Within the next few days I just might have a cool Cowboy Bebop jumper. :D

Well, I had some technical difficulties yesterday with our computer, so I couldn't post my WIP progress picture until now. I took this picture yesterday morning after having finished knitting Ed and working up to the neck. My current progress at the moment is that I am nearly done! I am just doing my tidying, weaving in my ends and seaming the little bits of the underarms left from the pattern.

I tossed in on last night after I finished the neck and I do kind of wish I had made it a little longer. However, since I am losing a bit of weight the hope is that by the time I'm at my goal it will be more or less the perfect length I was hoping for. *Fingers crossed*, I will be able to finish my tidying, weaving and seaming today and post a final picture tonight or tomorrow. :D

If there was ever a project to make me tackle my complete inability to knit, this would be it. :nod

I too am very impressed with how quick you knitted this up!

Really love the final piece, and have really enjoyed seeing the stages that you've gone through in making this. Beautiful!! :clap:

Aww, thanks for the lovely comments everyone!

The funny thing is, that when I started this, I was planning on taking my time and making it a long project, but I just got too excited to finish it, haha.

I might eventually have to make a full series of jumpers. One for each of the main characters. In fact, now that I've had that thought, I really want to do it. I could do each of them in colours that suit their character. Okay, I need to stop my brain before I get ahead of myself. Someday when I have the money for the yarn I might give it a shot. :)
