Well, here's the body up to about 12 inches. At 13 inches I start decreasing for the v-neck, but up to this point it's just been repeating the pattern and trying not to make mistakes. The tension is not as even as I would like still, but I fix it up a bit by pulling stiches that are too small or too big and then steam it and it looks pretty good after that.
I had hoped to finish it before I leave for Paris, but that isn't going to happen, so this sweater which started as a "Tour de France" challenge project is going to go to France to be completed--hopefully. It depends on if I can find a sewing machine in France to use for the stitching. It gets cut down the middle where those checker-board stitches are. It is supposed to be a cardigan.
