I casted on over a month ago and felt incredibly accomplished when I had finished the back, and both fronts in 3 days. Then I found my left side was actually another right side. I frogged it and set it aside, but finding this KAL has inspired me to push through and finish! I am almost done with the scoop neck decreases on the (proper) left side.

will post pictures soon!

I never paid any attention to that before - because I knit them from the top down - but you are absolutely correct - you do the decreasing and then do two plain - this is to make a smother edge for sewing.

Hurry with a picture!!!!

I'm incredibly proud of you - that is such a difficult thing to do - start over - and you did it! The makings of a great knitter, for sure!!!!

And I'm looking forward to the pix!

After months of putting all knitting aside, I picked up this sweater a few days ago, and am glad to announce that I've finished the second sleeve and nearly finished the right front. With only the left front to go, I'm very excited and dreaming of the buttons I'll put on it!

Wonderful! Can hardly wait to see it! (Action photo please!)

I just restarted my sister's re-make as well! Hope to be done soon - but probably won't post pics since it will look just like the last (first) one - until I go back to the US and take a picture of it actually ON her!

I would, but I've still got another three posts before I can. Anyway, I'm worried about seaming as this is my first sweater (ok, second, but that one is still a WIP and I haven't started seaming it either). The pattern says use the mattress stitch, but does anyone have feedback as to if that works or another one that would be better? Thanks!

The stitch that works best for me - don't know what it is called - pick up the loop in the stitch on one side and then on the other side, back and forth - turns out an invisible seam, really! You place both pieces side by side flat, right side facing up when you do it.

To get up to the # of posts easily and fun - go to the "finished" thread and admire all the finished projects!

I loved this pattern so much I'm going out to buy yarn tomorrow.

I just wish I had a LYS. All I have is a multi-craft store with an entire shelf of acrylic yarn...o well.
