I've finished the knitting and pinned all the pieces together. 



I won't be sewing it together for a couple of weeks because I'm taking a sweater design class where we're learning seaming.  This isn't the first sweater I've seamed by a long shot, but I'm looking forward to actually doing it well for a change!  When I have FO photos, I'll post them.

I also have another photo on my blog:

Ooh, that's looking great!  Ha, maybe you can pass some sweater seaming tips on to us (or me!)

I finished mine today by sewing on some buttons. It took forever to dry and I think I could have blocked it better but I will try to post a pic tomorrow. (I like outdoor light when I can get it and it's cloudy right now.) Overall, I think it was a fun and painless knit!

LOL.  I think I may be the messiest seamer alive.  I totally need to take a class like that!

Against my better judgment (i.e., extreme PMS -- and accompanying feelings of looking bloated  Tongue ), here's a picture of my Mrs. Darcy:



The yarn is Classic Elite Skye Tweed in the color Loch Ness. I need to re-block the curvy front border better. And, although the ribbing waist part lined up fine, as a result, I need to add an extra gold button to the ribbing part.

Thanks again for the very lovely pattern Indie-knitter   Grin  I can't wait to see other finished versions.

Looks great Glaistig! 

I finished mine up last night, so I will post pics soon!  The buttons I really wanted to use ended up being too small so I had to go with my second choice, but I think it still turned out really nice.

I already have plans to make another, even better, one - lol!  I think on my next one I will go with 4 or 5 buttons like some of you have done and I might lengthen it an inch or two.  I also want to figure out a way to knit it in the round - or at least knit the body in one piece because I never was able to get my ribbing on the waist to line up exactly on any of the seams.  Has anyone in this KAL tried that?

Thanks ladies!

Peps, Glampyre's free Forecast sweater pattern has a top down raglan construction which worked super well for me. Maybe similar seamless principles could be applied to Mme Darcy?

Woooo, I just finished a sleeve!  Now I have the back, right front, and one sleeve done - 60%!  I'm so pumped.  This green color is looking great!

I'm getting toward the end, too!  Back, two fronts, and the beginnings of a sleeve.  But it turns out that I'm a SUPER slow twisted rib knitter...these sleeves are slow-going for me...which is bad because I'm excited and impatient to be done and see how it all comes together! Smiley
