Great job!  Lovely sweater!  I bookmarked it for me for later!

I have been knitting again for a little more than a year now.  Was the pattern hard to follow?  What is going on at the end of the sleeve?  Is that a button?  Ah, I see split cuffs in your post.  Could you further explain for my addled brain? 

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

Thank you, everyone, for all of the kind words!  I'm so excited that I was able to finish.  It's listed as "Experienced" in the magazine, I didn't notice until after I had started.

  What is going on at the end of the sleeve?  Is that a button?  Ah, I see split cuffs in your post.  Could you further explain for my addled brain? 

The sleeve starts as an icord, then you pick up stitiches and knit onto it.  Later, the sleeve is rotated slightly and put onto DPNs.  It ends up with a split cuff with an icord edging that you then tie in a little knot.  I'll try to take a pic of it.

Oh, and Lily . . . no, I'm not off of crocheting!  I just need someone to keep designing cool crochet sweaters.  Hint, hint.   Wink
