So that's my (unblocked) right front panel. Did I totally eff it up or is that what it's supposed to look like?

betchka, I'm doing mine in the same exact color! And I hope that's not effed up, because it's exactly what mine looks like...LOL.

P.S. I LOVE your avatar! :-D

I finished the back, late last night


Hopefully I can finish the fronts in the next few days.

ok, I'd love to join this KAL.  I really want to make this cardigan...the coolest pattern for one I've seen and looks challenging (in a good way).  HOWEVER, I really want to make it in a Dark Brown.  KnitPicks Cinnamon just isn't dark enough for me.  Anyone have suggestions for another yarn that is as good or even better?  Also, I'm concerned about the bulkyness of the yarn and how that will affect the FO.  I'm tired of knitting bulky sweaters that make me look bigger than I am.  I saw in the other Starsky KAL that a gal had used a DK weight yarn.  I'm wondering if I should take that route.... any ideas or suggestions?

Cheesy hey, colour wise I think that I have a solution for you. juniperl13 posted on page 3 that she used Bernat Satin............ it comes in a fantastic coffee colour! Very dark brown. I hope this helps. Can't wait to post my own pics.
Beautiful back Necia! so lovely!

cool!  Thanks Silver Ilix.... I checked out that yarn.  However, I don't think I want to use acrylic for this one.  I'm actually thinking of using some Berrocco Ultra Alpaca.  I bought some for another project (in a wine color) and really liked it.  It's not the bulky weight like the pattern calls for but I think I may try it anyway.  Also it comes in all kinds of colors including the one I'm looking for.  I don't think I want as much ease as the pattern gives for the sweater either so this might be perfect!  I'll keep you guys posted on progress...  keep goin on those Starsky's and thanks for the yarn advice! 

EDIT TO ADD....
Ok, so I'm super excited because I swatched with the wine colored Berrocco Ultra Alpaca I had and I came out to almost the same gauge the pattern asks for!!  The same stitch gauge and only 2 rows more than the row gauge!  YAY!  So, I'm headed to the yarn store to get some.  Hopefully they have what I want.  If not, I gotta order online.  Can't wait to start this!

I'm starting to lose momentum....must.ke ep.knitting! I had actually decided to take a break and work on something else, but then I left my knitting bag in the back of a cab (goodbye, all my favorite markers/needles/tape measurers) and took it as a sign from above that I needed to just keep working on this. I am so glad I didn't lose part of my starsky--after how long I've been working on this! I'd be devastated!

Did anyone thing that the front piece of the sweater seemed just a tad bit too small or is it just me?

I keep worrying that I'm making a size too small...

edit: I am. Crap....time to get to ripping.

Did you call the cab-company to see if someone had found it??

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I live in NYC and didn't get the cab's number, so it could be anywhere. Retail value around $50ish--oh well, could have been worse.

I think I can maybe block the back and it'll be okay--it's only one size too small and a few stitches smaller. I'll just have to reeeeeeeeally stretch it a bit.
