Retro sweater

This is taking a long time but I think it will be worth it. I'm using an old vogue knitting magazine from the late 1950's for this sweater with this wonderful 4-row slip stitch. I'm using Jo Sharp Classic DK wool. The stitch takes alot of yarn but creates this gorgeous texture. I have one sleeve to go, but with them being raglans they're taking forever. I don't about sss standing for second sock syndrome, I think it should be second sleeve syndrome.
