That's really great and it looks like it fits really well. Further proof that the sweater is very hip fair isle. Now, if I only decide which colors to use...I want to make myself one while the weather's still cold.

FABULOUS. Love love love love love love love love it! Great colors. I just got the book and I really want to make this sweater, but I wasn't really feeling the colors of the one in the book, so it's great to see an example of different colors!

Did you run into any problems making it, like with the pattern or whatever? I'm a glutton for pattern tips......  Wink

Oh my goodness you guys are so wonderfully supportive! Thanks for all the sweet comments, it really makes my day (or week, perhaps month. which is important in january. who likes january?)

redbirdrae- i think five or six skeins of the lime green color, but i am not really sure, as i lost (!!) some of the yarn allong the way and had to run all over foreign new jersey towns trying to locate it. and yes, it is pretty easy, but when you move from doing the bottom body/ front cardigan part to the sleeves, when you put the stitches for the arms on holders, i'd reccommend putting the arm stitches on yarn instead of dpn's or circulars because it's easier to understand how it turns out after that step. that goes for mojisha and anjanasofia as well- i got really confused there, but plowed along.

the big yarn makes for a quick project, it's probably faster than a fine gague scarf.

oh, and one more thing: there's a good tutorial for how to do kitchner stitch for the armpits in the first S'nB which I should have looked at before i attempted that slightly traumatic part.



feel free to personal message me with any more questions (is that what the personal message thing is for anyway? i'm not sure how to use it...)

debbie you are my SUPERHERO!  Grin you've done some really impressive work with making knitting not just hip and trendy and youthfull, but showing how knitting often takes over ENTIRE LIVES for a very good reason!

Cha Cha Cha, that sweater is soooo great ! The colors, the way it fits...its perfect. I almost want to buy the book just for this pattern. Its so helpful to see someone's version of a pattern from a book because it can give you a different perspective--different colors, different way of wearing it. Your version of this sweater is really inspiring--its just so cute.
