I finally finished mine a while ago.
Check it out on my blog here: http://knitoncastoff.blogspot.com/2007/04/blog-post.html
I wear it all the time, with anything.  I'll have to stop soon though because it is June and too warm for hoodies... :-(
I think I may knit myself another sometime maybe with something variegated.
Oh, and the compliments just keep on coming!
Thanks for the great pattern!

I'd love to be able to see the photos of the original post, on the first page. It sounds as though this is something that I'd be very interested in trying to make.
Is anyone else having problems viewing the original photos? Or can they be seen somewhere else?

I'm having problems too, queen_gueneviere. I wish I could see the original picture... by everyone's comments it sounds like something I'd be interested in too. Maybe the original poster would fix the pics Smiley

Progress shot!  I'm so excited, this is my first sweater-type garment! First time putting together front, back, sleeve pieces too.  Did you guys do mattress stitch to sew it up?  I'm using Manos Del Uruguay Malabrigo in a gorgeous indigo/purply color.  I'm so in love with manos, it's the fifth project I've used it for, and it's definitely my favorite. Especially with addi turbo needles, it just sliiiides right along.

I'm so pleased, this was my first sweater! I feel like I'm ready to take on more challenging things now.  This was a great learning experience.  I used Malabrigo in Indigo, and made 1/2 sleeves so I can wear it at work while I'm giving massages.  I use my forearms and elbows a lot, and I hate having to put on/take off my sweaters all the time.  This way, I can just leave it on! I had a tiny bit left over, so I made a headband to go with it. Cheesy

I would love to knit this to wear in Korea for my coming holiday there. I would like to try the top-down verison as i m not good in seaming.

For those who had knitted the top-down verison, how do u join a new ball of yarn ? What i did is to tied a knot with the old and the new yarn tog to knit, but there is always a knot on that row and the few stitches around it is kind of "wired looking" stitches, kind-of tight. I had been told to try to change yarn on the back side or near the armpit fold. I have also try knitting the new and old yarn tog to knit thru yet again that a first glance i will notice that couples of stitches are of the different sizes !!

Any help is appreicated !! Thank you......jackie

If you find yourself saying "But I can't do this subject...", Try adding the word "YET". Keep trying and never give up. It is only a matter of time when you will finally succeed.

If you use a wool yarn you can spit splice or just seperate the plies and knit part of one with part of the new one and it will not make the stitch size change.
