Well, gosh darn, I just finished up my Kyoto, too!  Here's a pic:

I somehow remembered the right/left issue and fortunately, made mine the alive way.  Phew!  There's more pics and me rambling at length about it on my blog.  I love it!

Thanks everyone!  There are pictures of me wearing it on my website.


About the left over right crossing. . .
I'm very visual, so I went by the photo.  True the directions say left over right, and it says to add the collar by starting at the Left front.  Well, is that my left when I am wearing it, or the left as it lays on your lap?  I got confused and over which left and went by the picture and my left hand side.
So if I were to correct the crossing, I would have to take off the entire collar.  I'm just so happy to have this done that I can't bear frogging it anymore.  So its going to stay like it is for now.  Grin

I like the pattern.  Its great for a beginner.  I wish I had made it longer.  I may one day knit another sash in black cotton and change out the sash.  Wouldn't that be a cute idea for this pattern, to have multiple sash's in different colors and you could change them out to suit your mood or to match your shoes.  Grin

Great job on the Kyotos, everyone!  Mine is in limbo.   Embarrassed
However, as soon as I finish up some things that suddenly needed immediate attention, I'll get back to it.

These are beautiful!  I've finished my sash, back, and one side of the front.  Thanks to all of your advice, I'm definitely planning to pick up stitches for the collar and knit the sleeves in the round.  Oh, and finish it left over right (is that right?  now I'm confused!)!!

[Worked back and forth on circular needle]

CO 85[90, 95, 105] sts and work St st 12[12.5, 13, 14] inches, ending with a WS row.

ending with a WS row....does that mean I need to show purl on the wrong side before beginning to shape?
