Almost There!!

This was taken a while ago, but I've only got 3/4 of an inch to go before the neckline and it seems like the last 2 inches are taking forever. It's becoming very well traveled and has been to London, ran in the Race for Life and to the Brighton Pride events now. It almost went to Guide camp but was getting too big to go (a sock went instead)

Just a quick question for everyone - when attaching the neckband does it matter where you put the join? On the Knitty the photo it's on the left but if I join at the beginning of the row it will be on the right. I don't think I'm lost but best to sort this out now.

I have a few buckle choices and am leaning towards the Green one or the pearly one. These were great Jumble sale finds and sold as 1930's buckles for £0.50 each. I'll need to decide before I make the neck as the opening sizes are different and I don;t know if I want the neck to be as wide as the green one or not though.

the join just dictates where the buckle will be, which is just a matter of your preference.
i like the top left one a lot! your yarn is a lovely color. it's going to look great when finished!

I think I like the pearly one best - the green kinda matches TOO much (how the heck did you do that, and why can I never do that with black??)
