I want to try your (BEAUTIFUL) sweater for my friend for Christmas, but I was wondering if you could clarify the yardage you used? 

Was it 6 balls of WoolEase (about 197yd/ball) + the recycled yarn? 

so about 1200yds of woolease +the recycled yarn?  Your notes say about 100yards for the sweater (which would be awesome!)...  (sorry if this is nitpicky).

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

As far as the yardage, I honestly don't really know (sorry).  I used yarn from a recycled sweater and held it together with the wool-ease and I used at least 5 balls of the Wool-ease...

  It was probably 900 - 1000 yards total, but there were 2 strands held together, so 1000 yards of each, OR 1000 of a yarn that you get the right gauge in.  I know on the internet (somewhere) there is a general yardage estimator and if you determine the size you want to make at the gauge you get (plus a little extra -- 100 yards or so) for the neck) you should be alright).

I should go double check the pattern. I think  I meant to say 1000, not 100.

I hope this was helpful, and not more confusing!

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Arrrrghghhghghgggghhh. That is the sound of me drooling over this sweater. It is beee-ewe-tee-ful.

One question though: Is it hard to knit? It looks kind of tough and intimidating.

Not hard at all, virginiawoolf!  This sweater was born because I wanted a FO asap and a sweater I would actually wear!  (although the unseasonably warm weather here has made it useless for the time being)  The combo of larger gauge and top down raglan makes it customizable and fast.  And I am VERY happy to give any help/suggestions!
