i started this afternoon and i'm about 4 inches in, i had to recalculate the pattern though since i'm using supermerino on size 8's instead of the knitpicks on size 5's

I started mine in peach Andean Treasure last week.  I just joined under the arms last night, but...  I joined earlier than the pattern called for.  I just didn't want the slit neck to go down quite that far.  I'm going to make the sleeves a little bit longer too, and add some waist shaping.  I'm already planning a long-sleeved sweater with this yarn!

I just bought glee and after reading the pattern I thought about steeking.  Do you think that you could knit is all in the round and then steek the v-opening?  I just read Eunny J's steeking encyclopedia and think it could work to avoid all of the straight stock stitching...

I've never done steeking, but it's really not a "v" neck.  The sides of the "v" are straight and there are 12 stitches at the bottom, so it's more of a squared off "u".  I have no idea if that makes a difference, but it seems like it may.

I just found this knitalong - I was looking for one while working on the sweater, and I have NO idea why I didn't look here first. I didn't even find it while googling!

In any case, I finished up Glee recently. I love how it came out and rather happy with it:

I don't have enough posts to post a photo, but here's a direct link to the blog post:

I found the Andean Treasure an absolute dream to work with - so soft and easy to use.

That looks great!  I also just finished mine and also despised sewing on the hooks!  You're right, it's worth it though.
