Cityscape, almost ready to work the neck ribbing. After I finally got off Sleeve Island, it went fast. When the neck is done, then I cut the steek and work the button bands. That checkerboard area in the center is where the steek will be cut; there are 3 stitches on either side of the cutting line to provide a facing to turn under and margin for error. Cutting your knitting is totally not scary at all. Not nearly as scary as lace.
For example, consider Persephone. I cast on this shawl and have made a fair amount of progress over the last few weeks, a row here and there. But consider that if I ever dropped a stitch, I could get completely confused and be unable to delicately un-knit to the point where the mistake was made. In fact, it would be highly likely that I could knit on in complete ignorance of a massive mistake for many rows, because lace knitting looks like a big jumble of disorganized matter as you're knitting it:
