yes. peps -- when switching to ribbing with a colour change, always do a plain knit round in the new colour before starting the ribbing.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

peps did you use the shaping at the waist?  I can't tell if it is or if it's your figure...i havn't quite decided if i'm going to use the shaping.  Currently i'm using the $5 in paris pattern, with the thought of using the shaping from the original pattern on page 1 for the waist area. 
You're looks beautiful...very fun and summery!

Yes, I did the waist shaping as recommended on page one, and I'm really glad I did - I love the way ot turned out.  Though, with the waist shaping and the shorter rib on the bottom it is looking less and less like $5 in Paris.  Maybe it will be $5 in Prague.  I've always wanted to go there.

So, I know I want to do sleeve shaping but I'd like to do it by decreasing needle size rather than decresing the stitches themselves.  Has anyone done this?  I think I'm going to make the sleeves longer - ending just above the elbow.

I just cast on for the boatneck version of this sweather yesterday. As cheap acrylic yarn like Caron simply soft etc is in short supply here in Norway, I'm making mine from some fine wool/nylon blend yarn (Sandnesgarn sisu). I'm knitting on European size 3 needles, so I cast on 220 stitches for a size medium, and so far things seem to be working out fine. I'm doing stripes this time around, but I might consider lace if I make another one.

I haven't made too much progress, so this is where I am right now.

As I haven't posted enough to be allowed pictures yet, follow the link to see: http://folk.ntnu.no/marisk/Genser.jpg

I'm making it with a row of buttons from the neckline to the armpit, so I haven't joined it in the round yet.

peps> I have tried this before...... it is quite effective, I would reccomend going down in 1/2 sizes if you can...
You should only need to change once or twice.
Can't wait to see! Cheesy

Hey everyone!
The theme is now officially "cables" for July-Aug.!
This should be very interesting! Cables are so unique and intricate....

Amusingly enough I'm just popping in here to FINALLY post a picture of my pink and black striped raglan. Hee.



Since the next challenge is cables, I'll also post the pictures of my first designed sweater. At some point in the next couple days I'm going to blog about it, and if there's interest, I'll post a pattern (or at least a formula for it, I believe in frequent try ons and adjusting the pattern to fit your own body).

Here's the pics:
