Is this KAL still on?
I just started knitting this sweater for my 6 mo.
Gosh, such an addictive knitting.  I'm using elann peruvian wool.

I'm pretty sure that there are a few people still working on this pattern. I'm currently on the edging of my second one. Smiley

I'm still here! When I said in a previous post that this is a quick knit, it was before I got to the outer part (takes much longer to get around...) and the loopy bind off. I think I'm about 2/3's of the way through the bind off now. It's slow going, but so cute that it's going to be worth it. Mine doesn't look exactly like the pattern photo. I may be doing something differrent than instructed (although I think I'm doing it right!) but it's a pretty neat edge, and I'm leaving it  Cheesy.

I hope to start on the sleeves tomorrow.

FWIW, here's a photo "sans sleeves." The Patons SWS has knit up nicely. I was concerned that the striping might come out in some odd way, but I'm pretty happy with it. On to the sleeves!

ooo sittenknitten... your pinwheel sweater is looking beautiful in those colors..and i agree about how the sweater seems to go really fast until the garter stitch rows and the loopy edging.. once they are done though.. the sleeves go pretty fast.. (^_^)

go go megaknits... i can't wait to see sweater #2..!!!

Megaknits, are you making a matching sweater or a different one? I love the colors you choose for your first one!

apixiegrl, the sleeves ARE going fast. I am just ready to make the second round of decreases and have just realized I may have started the sleeve round and done the increases in the wrong place. I'm thinking it should have been on the bottom "intersection:" but wait: since the sweater can be worn short side up or long side up, which side IS best for the decreases? Oh boy, I am overthinking again, but where did you guys place yours?

the sweater can be worn both ways.. i just looked at mine and the decreases on the sleeves are facing up toward the shorter side of the sweater.. and when worn that way they are hardly noticable....... knit on.!!.Cheesy

sittenkitten: This second sweater I'm making is similar to the one I made for Emily. It's naturals, greens and purples, but uses a little more green I think. The colors are:

Silver Birch
Peridot
New Leaf
Lace Pink
Orchid Pink
Lotus Blosson
Grape

Plus for the sleeves, I did the stockinette in color # 4 and then striped the ribbing with all 7 colors. Just 6 rnds of each color gives you your 12" sleeve. See:



And on Emily's sweater I accidently did the increases on the 'top' and only later realized that it would be weird one way or the other so it's no big deal.

I didn't think the first one could be any prettier, but the second one is another home run! Beautiful! I like your sleeve idea too.

It's good to know that the arm decreases don't matter  Wink !

I've got my first sleeve finished, now I have to see if I can match up the stripe pattern so the second one resembles the first... Self patterning yarn seemed like a good idea, but at this point I'm wanting a teensy bit more control over how the stripes turn out on the second arm.  Roll Eyes
