Everyone's looks so nice, I'm inspired!  Smiley I'm going to bookmark this for my first sweater, and once I finish all my WIPs I'll get to it.

I did 3/4'' sleeves and have notes on my blog about my sleeve decreasing.

May or may not be helpful.

You did a great job! I've been wondering how pink and grey would look for this. It's beautiful.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

I finished my first raglan sweater on July 29, but didn't post a picture here!  It turned a bit on the big size, but it is comfortable.  I made several modifications to fit my short torso and disdain for ribbing.  Currently I'm half way through a second one that is more fitted!  I can't remember my photobucket sign in info right now, so here's a link to my blog:)

It looks great, especially for a first one! You're lucky, you have to shorten the torso. I usually have to lengthen mine about 4 inches which takes longer to knit!

I'm terribly excited!  I've cast on, and am nearly done with *gasp!* row 2 of my first sweater!   Shocked  I never thought I'd be a sweater knitter...but I'm soooooo excited!!  I can't wait to see if I'll be able to manipulate it to fit me Smiley

I'll post pics as I am able...what a great KAL!

There have been two of these pink and grey ones so far in the KAL.  They're the Simply Soft colors.  You should make one and join the club!

sdawson - I love your FO.  It looks cute short!

I finished two sweaters with this pattern!  So exciting!  This was such an easy and quick knit - I definitely plan to make more.

Thanks for the pattern!

They both look awesome! I can't wait to start knitting more in the fall!

Could anyone tell me how one would go about making this into a vneck?  Someone posted a link to the other topdown pattern, but I didn't understand it.
