Neck & Cuffs Complete

I am still working on my sweater. The neck and cuffs are now complete.
I had to rip out the last two inches or so of the neck three times because I kept coming to a stitch that was giving me fits.
If I knit it as presented it would leave a gaping hole.
I would redo it and still come to the same mistake.
FINALLY, I realized it was one of the 'wrapped' stitches that had not been addressed properly
when I was finished shaping the neck with the short rows.
Once I figured that out and knit it up it looked much better.
As you can see on the neck in the picture, the back of the sweater is higher than the front by about an inch. That is because I knit short rows on the back of the sweater to give it more height.

I picked up stitches around the cuff and knit a few rounds, added some color,knit a couple more rounds and then turned it to the inside and attached it there.

The body hem and underarms are all that I have left to do.
