i've almost completed mine version in the round...

it took me ages to try and nut out the rib raglan increases. i still didn't get it down pat. you can read about it here

i've added lacy leaves down the sides and i'm just kinda making it up as i go but i really liked the ribbed neck and that's why i decided to make this!

happy knitting!

Hey all,
I cast on for this a few days ago, finished the back and then kinda neglected it for other WIPs Sad 
Anyways, I picked it back up this morning and just finished the front.
I made a few modifications:
-made the front and back about 3" longer
-did a sort of broken seed stitch thingie for the yoke (it was a mistake on my part, but I liked the way it looked, so I kept going)
-added some cables to the front

I'm gonna get started on the sleeves later tonight, but I had a quick question:

Has anyone made the sleeves longer - like full length, I mean?? And done it in the round??

This is my first sweater and I want to modify the sleeves, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about doing it...

Here's what I've got so far, sweater-wise:

Hope the pictures worked!

I have been working on mine for a year  Shocked
Well... I got the back and front finished in a day.. the front yoke confused me so I didnt touch it again for a year, til this week.

and now I am stuck on how to do the sleeve increases and such... ugh.. this sweater will never be done. Off to go read through old posts on the subject.
Also, this is (clearly) my first knitted sweater.

L train : great first sweater, love it :0)

If you find yourself saying "But I can't do this subject...", Try adding the word "YET". Keep trying and never give up. It is only a matter of time when you will finally succeed.

Don't give up exquisitebones!  If you mess up the sleeves you can always rip them out and start over.  

I finished my 3-hour (more like 30 hour for me) sweater.  This is my second sweater.  I wore it yesterday to my friend's house, but the photos of me in it are all of me hunched over on the sofa.  

Here is a link to my sweater from Ravelry:


It is Caron Simply Soft in Autumn Red.  I chose this yarn because it is cheap and I didn't want to screw up expensive yarn since I'm a beginner.  It seems to have stretched out a bit, so I might make a smaller one at a later date.
