That looks fabulous!  The color is great, as is the fit, and I love the lace panel.

I just have to weave in my ends and I'll be done too.  I also lost my puffy sleeves, I just thought it was because I have the shoulders of a linebacker!

kathyruth -- it looks great.  makes me want to make it even more!
juliesnider and kathyruth -- do you think the lost puffiness is b/c of the gauge, or something else?  one of the main reasons i love this pattern is b/c of those puffy sleeves and i am about to go on a yarn hunt (i just moved to philly and still need to find/check out all the yarn stores near me!) so I wanted to see what your thoughts were about it....

I didn't check gauge (I know, I know).  Like I said, I thought it was just because I have really broad shoulders, but KathyRuth looks like she's tiny, so I don't know.  I liked them too, but husband says he's glad they aren't puffy, so it's ok with me!

I was wondering the same thing...I love the puffiness of the sleeves.  How do you "lose" them?

My shoulders just fill them out...  I'll try to post pictures today to show you.  Maybe you could do more increases/decreases if you want them pouffier...

My sleeves are not puffy because my gauge was off....my sweater knitted up smaller than it should be!  I think if you are knitting at the correct gauge, your sleeves will look nice and puffy!

AWW!  I bought yarn, I paid for the pattern, but when I try to download the pdf file it just says "error file not found."  I really wanted to start on this today, but I guess I'll have to wait.  I emailed customer service, but they haven't gotten back to me yet.

Anyone else have this problem?

Yep, I've had that problem both times I've ordered from them.  However, they were really quick emailing me the pattern each time!
