Everyone's finished sweaters are looking gorgeous, and it's great to see how the sweater looks in a variety of yarns.
I'm up to the upper body armpit division after some road-trip knitting this weekend (though, as always, the wisdom of sitting in a vehicle going 70 MPH while manipulating size 13 needles is questionable)

I'm pretty sure my millend yarn IS the bernat softee chunkee you used, fishie, though the colorway is pooling a bit differently.
Shortly after this picture was taken the kitten (Mei) started chewing on my Denise cords. Cats are so helpful.

I thought that Cherie looked familiar!  Cats ARE helpful.  Here's Steve helping me block my Cherie:

Well I cast on my Cherie Amour last night (finally!) and knit the first row -- then frogged it.

 Angry

I was using these circular needles I'd bought on eBay.  I've gotten straits (in 2 lengths) and DPNs from the same seller and love them -- but his circulars are no good.  The "cord" is essentially rubber aquarium hose.  Ugh.  So I'm going to the LYS tonight and picking up some Addi Turbos.  I'm doing this right this time, dang it.

One silly question though -- I've never knit from a chart.  I understand normally when you knit, you read row 1 from right to left, row 2 from left to right, etc.  However, in this case because we're using circulars, is the chart read from right to left on EVERY row?  I *assumed* that was the case, but I figured I'd make sure before I made a mess and had to frog a bunch of work.

Yes Smiley You were right (because every row is a Right Side row)

Haha, my cat did the same thing, except it wasn't ready to be blocked yet! I think she was under the impression I was making her a cat bed, and was confused and a little annoyed when she saw me wearing it.

I've finished the body (and I'm worried it's a bit too loose) but now I'm having so many problems with the sleeves I want to give up. For some reason the simplest lace pattern in the world is giving me headaches- I consistently come up stitch short every few rows even though the row is perfect. Bah!

Anyway, I'm thinking about frogging the sleeve I'm working on and eliminating the ribbing. Has anyone else done that, and if so did you have issues with rolling, since it's all stockienette style lace?

Hopefully I'll be able to post an FO pic soon!!

I just got some yarn and will start this gorgeous pattern today.  I've never done lace before, so we'll see how it goes:)
Everyone's FO's are inspiring!
cheers,

I eliminated the ribbing and didn't have any rolling issues. My sleeves came out very wide and long, though, so I'd recommend making them smaller than the pattern. The body of mine is a little too loose as well, but it's still wearable (see my pics posted earlier). I had the same problem you did with the lace stitches not coming out right-- I just improvised, adding or decreasing a stitch here or there as needed, and it came out fine.
