WHEW!  51 pages to read!  But I stayed up past my bedtime last nite reading through it and spent a good portion of my free time at the office finishing it lol. I love seeing the completed sweaters. I can't wait to get started on mine.

Since I am going to be making one of the larger versions... I'd really really love to see the completed pics on the 48' size TheBon is working on, I'd like to see how it comes out sizewise.... that purple is pretty. 

The other thing I'd like to know is how did the one in Simply Soft come out? Was that you storm? I'm so slow, I can't imagine finishing 2 of them so fast hehe, but I'd really like to see pics of the Simply Soft one. Every once in awhile I can shell out for the expensive yarns and I may do that for myself but I'd like to make one for a gift and I can't afford expensive yarns for both lol. =)

I can't tell you how much I love the look of this sweater. Too bad since I live in florida I'll only be wearing it like 4 months of the year lol.

Thanks so much for explaining that 'thebon'.  It does make more sense now after showing how you got that count.
I wasn't 'really'  Embarrassed doubting you, just very curious how you calcuated all those stitches! 
You know how it is, it seems like a huge number in ones head...  Wink

I started it and it is coming out pretty nice.  The yarn gets a little fuzzy but I think I can fix it after I am done.  I did make the mistake of drinking and lacing.....band combo and I have to undo a few rows.....I could still take a pic i guess. Let me know.

My mother in law sent me some nice bamboo yarn to see if I would want to make a 2nd out of it.....much lighter feeling. We'll see if I get over my annoyance at the messed up lace enough to get this one done soon. I am such a flaky knitter.

It does seem like a huge number. I can only think about how many stitches it would have been WITHOUT the deep v. The girls have to be covered!

Speaking of which, I have reached the point of the first purl rows. It has to wait though because I need to buy needles. Needles that I am going to buy tomorrow after I return soda cans. I'm going to have to wait and see about the lower bit, I may need less length than the pattern calls for [I am short waisted.] I figure I'll try it on again after I get the purl rows and lace done [hopefully tomorrow, if not, then likely Sunday.] I'll post more photos when I get there.

Yes the 'girls' certainly do need coverage.
(I mean generally and not just yours of course!)

Every time I see one finished, I like it more and more.  It is a pretty design and I'm sure yours is going to look smashing!  Especially with that gorgeous colour you are using.   I lllloooovvvveeee purple!

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

I only have one sleeve finished and since it's around 80 right now, I'm not feeling the urge to start on the second sleeve.
I decided to use TLC cotton plus and had to change to size 2 and 5 needles and dpns. This is a combination of the size XS and S, I started with the size S at the top and then decreased to a size XS for the lace panel and the sleeves.

I finished the lace bit. Know that I am shortwaisted, I made the panel shorter than called for and it hits me right where I wanted it to. I'm seriously debating omitting the lace on the sleeves all together, adding a set of purl ridges to where they are and calling it good. We'll see when I get there.

I actually decided to omit the lace AND the purl ridges on the biceps and am doing the sleeves in stockinette, except I am doing the purl ridges at the bottom edge of the sleeve.  I am also not going to be flaring the sleeves as much.  Here's my progress:

TheBon - leave it like that and you have a cute minisweater!  Seriously, I think you could wear it just like that (well, finish the edges) and no one would look twice at you.
Love the purple!
