I started knitting the sweater last night and I've got good news and bad news. Bad news is..theres no way you can get this thing done in 3 hrs unless youve made 30 of them before or took the highspeed out of your internet or something. Good news is-its super easy! After about 5 hrs of knitting I have the back and half of the front done. I'm pretty sure it will fit ok too because it stretches like crazy. I'm using some left over Caron's Simply Soft in a retro seafoam green on size 5s and 8s. We'll see if I can finish it tonight.

Can't wait to see the FO....please, please, please post pics...I need some inspiration!!!  Cheesy

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.

Okay, I've just found this thread, and I think I need to do this this week - I've got loads of "alone" time coming up, and a sack full of mohair-ish yarn recently rediscovered in the trunk of my car.

To make this more fun, I offer a bribe: I'll send a scarf to the first craftster who posts FO pics along with a write up of the process/experience.

Now, let's get knitting!

I finished the front, back, and first sleeve yesterday but run into a problem.  There is no way the sleve is going to fit around my upper arm. I'm going to have to rip it back and increase it by an inch or so.

Well I fixed the sleeves but the whole body doesn't fit *boohoo*. Its like a size or two too small. Oh well it didnt cost me anything, but a day worth of work. If you guys are interested I could post pics of the finished pieces..LOL.

Hope that inspires-helps some people out. Just be forewarned that this pattern would prob fit a size small.  Some might want to make the body a bit longer too.  I don't have the sleeves sewn in, but Im thinking that if I did finish it off it would probably come to right above my bellybutton.

thanks for posting SlickMariaVic - a noble attempt indeed!   Cheesy
when i was thinking of making it i was going to lengthen the body by a few inches and that just confirms that.  I still have to figure out a yarn and what needles to use Sad

Same here-the shape of it is really cute and the yarn I used was even slightly larger than the gauge for the pattern.  I'll just have to do some major math crunching for my next attempt. Don't know when that will be though.
