Thats beautiful Moiraine!

I finally pulled mine out again, and finished the first sleeve, and I'm halfway done with the second sleeve.  I have hopes of finishing it within the next week, but haven't had the time/energey to knit after work the last few months.

Thanks!!  I am looking forward to seeing your finished sweater!

moirane, how did you finish the neckline? did you do a foldover hem similar to the bottom?

Yes.  I picked up sts around the neckline (although some of the back neck and front neck sts were on holders, so I just knit them).  I knit the same number of rounds as the lower hem.  After a few rounds of the neckband, I made some decreases at the lower front part of the neckline (where it curves) and where the neckline curves around to the back.  Then after half the neckband was done, and I was working the second half, I increased in the same position as I had decreased on the first half.  Does that make sense (so the folded halves mirrored each other)?  When all of the rounds were complete, I folded it in half and sewed each live stitch to the back side.

Just want to post an update.  I finished my modified Venezia.  I am really  happy with the results.  I originally thought I'd never be able to wear this without a long sleeved shirt underneath.  But I have found that the wool surprisingly doesn't really bother me.  It's a little rough, but I don't find it to be itchy.  So I'll just wear a camisole underneath instead.  Smiley  Anyway, here's some pics...

Wow, Moiraine, I never knew that. There's so many ways. Shocked

Well, it really is just knitting the purl "bumps" and purling the knit "V's."  But to do that, a knitter needs to be able to "read" their stitches.  Wink  I just thought I'd break it down more technically because often beginning knitters aren't familiar with reading their stitches yet.

1} What is a seed stitch?
To further clarify:

1} What is a seed stitch?
If you're knitting flat and using an even number of stitches:
Row 1: *k1, p1, repeat from *
Row 2: *p1, k1, repeat from *
Repeat rows 1 & 2

If you're knitting flat and using an odd number of stitches:
Row 1: *k1, p1, repeat from *, k1
Repeat row 1

If you're knitting in the round with an even number of stitches:
Round 1: *k1, p1, repeat from *
Round 2: *p1, k1, repeat from *
Repeat rounds 1 and 2

ETA: When knitting in the round, you're actually knitting in a spiral, so where the last stitch of a round and first stitch of the next round join, it may appear like there are two knit or purl stitches next to each other.

If you're knitting in the round with an odd number of stitches:
Round 1: *k1, p1, repeat across from *, k1
Round 2: *p1, k1, repeat across from *, p1
Repeat rounds 1 and 2

2} What is a garter stitch?

2} What is a garter stitch?
If you are knitting flat, then you knit every row.  If you are knitting in the round, then you'd knit one round and purl the next round.  Then repeat those two rounds.

I'm working on my first sleeve too.  I'm about 4-1/2 inches into it.  I've been so busy with other things and haven't had much time to knit.  But I try to do a little here and there when I get a chance.  So far so good.

That what I get for knitting under the influence.

lol.   Wink  I hope your next attempt works out perfectly.
