I just started knitting this for my mom. I'm using Lamb's pride worsted (an old standby and stash yarn no less!) and I hope that works out. Anyone else working on it right now?

Heh. I've been "working" on this forever now. However, by "working" I mean that I haven't touched it in about 1.5 months.  School has been so hectic for me. The minute finals week is over, I'm going straight back to knitting.

Sadly, I frogged mine.  The sleeve were about three inches too short (i have monkey arms!) and the front and back were too long.  Also, I did the turtle neck mod. and it just looked way to baggy and huge on my neck.  So, sadly it was a failure for me.  I think I might try a top down basic raglan first just so I can figure out how long I need my arms and front and back to be, and then I think I'll try this again.

Wooo here's what I've got so far:
I knit most of it in the round instead of individual pieces because I loathe seaming. I'm at the cables now as you can see, but they aren't turning out that well... I've written a little more on my blog if you are interested.

I've finally completed the sweater, but unfortunately not done it justice.

I see a second attempt in the near future!

Here's a preview pic, and link to the longer, sad, sad post on me bloggy.

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

Aww. Canary, that's BEAUTIFUL.  Sadly, I gave up on mine for now.

Thanks for the words of encouragement!  I think I need to do a third attempt.  At least I'll try to learn from my multiple mistakes!

I have a question about the size of this. I knitted the size T2 and used only the 5 mm sized needles throughout, but the body is so large and I am doing the sleeves now and I casted on 40 stitches and started to increase and only have 6 more stitches now (46) and it is huge. Was this a problem for anyone else, or do I just knit too loosely?
