Thanks for the info- I also don't really know the requirements are for sock yarn, but I have had good luck substituting elann.com yarns for others in the past (bella paquita).  I have really wanted to try either the baby cashmere or silk, as they are both the same guage, and sound alot softer than your typical sock yarn.
  I'd say don't worry too much on substituting yarn though, from my experience so far, if it doesnt work for what you're trying to make, it will work for another project- never can have too much yarn Wink

Ooooh! beautiful job! I have been eyeing that pattern for some time now, and I love the elann yarn as well.  How many skeins did you need to make the pair?

Ooh if I ever make one I want to do it in that color, too.  Did you have to modify it?  I think some people have said it doesn't stay up on the shoulders, but yours seems to.

Well, I didn't modify it, but i do feel more comfortable wearing it with a tank top underneath.

Thanks everyone for all your kind comments.  I will try to answer all your questions as best as i can! Smiley

Very nice!!  I've been thinking about making this.  What did you think of the pattern?  It just makes me a little nervous because it says to use it as a guide, which makes me think it doesn't give exact directions, and since I've never made an adult-sized sweater before that would be a problem.

Actually, I was nervous about the way the pattern was written too, but I really liked the graph method, as it didnt leave any confusion over terminology.  This was actually my first adult sized sweater too, so I think you can do it!

Hey anna,
Thanks for your help!  l was thinking that if there is something crafty you'd like from Paris (my current residence ), maybe we could make a trade.  I am very eager to start knitting, so let me know what you think!
Thanks
Megan

Ok, another question... could someone help me find/purchase this pattern?  I know i can order it from Garnsalg.dk but it will cost me 12 euro for one silly pattern- that i will then have to translate...erg.  Should have bought it at This Side UP           http://www.thissideup.biz/

in stockholm, but i thought i could find an english version...  Sad  I wish i knew swedish so i could order directly from this store, as the people there were so nice... I dont know that i want to pay 75 Danish Krona to have it shipped to me, when the pattern only costs 20 Danish Krona

Any suggestions?
Thanks again!!!
