haha well i'm up for a bit of a challenge Wink  i'm about to cast on and start it.  i actually have 6 skeins of brown sheep cotton fleece that i think will work for this.  wish me luck!  i might need it haha Smiley 

Or probably a lot of knitters do this, write notes!!  I made  columns such as; moss stitch row, RLL row, textured stitch row, LLL row and moss stitch row.  As I finish rows, I cross them off.  If that make sense.Smiley

I'm glad others are interested (or have already started) this project.

My notes are color coded, LLL is red, moss is green, RLL is purple, etc.

I did cast on, even though my gauge wasn't exactly spot on, I have gotten past the twisted rib and about 10 rows of the pattern, but I decided I just don't like it.  It is too chunky, not what I want, so now I have to hunt up a different yarn to use. 
It never occurred to me to knit the three pieces as one, so I think I will write this out to try to knit it in one piece with whatever yarn I can come up with to do this on.

Koshare:  Maybe I missed it, but what yarn are you using for yours?  It looks great so far.  Smiley

I love this pattern and one day I would like to make it I think that right now I do not have the patience for it though. I cannot wait to see everyone when you are finished though.

I am done with LF and now started RF.  I omitted textured stitch pattern on front pieces.  I am using Malabrigo and it's amazing(you heard that before:)).  I hope my mom looks smashing in this.  hehe.

I love this sweater too.  I'm hitting Michaels on Black Friday, if I can get enough yarn in a color I like then, I might make this my first sweater.  Ok, not first sweater attempt, but hopefully first completed?
