I know this knitalong is incredibly old, but...

maybe some other knitters are willing to start?

I recently picked up the s'n'b book, and fell in love with the "lucky" wrap sweater! I ordered Elann's sonata yarn in Rosetta last week, received the package, and cast on using size 5 needles. I had to use a gauge multiplier to compensate for the thicker yarn, plus, I'm smaller than the pattern's XS size, and am planning on just wearing it over a cami during the summer. Oh, the woes of being petite!

Currently, I am halfway done with the back section, and am trying to decide whether or not I want to make fitted shoulders for this rather than the raglan shaping. Hmm... oh, and I'm desperately trying to keep my hands off of the knitting in order to finish homework! Torture!

Here's an incredibly blurry picture of the finished back piece. I modified almost every instruction... so I'm hoping the finished product comes out right!

I suppose I'll be the only one working on this knit"along"  Grin

This has been on my list for ages, and I'd join you if I didn't have so many other things on the go.  What you've done so far looks great.  I love the colour.

I'm knitting this sweater too.  I finished the back and am working on the right front piece.  I found the whole neck shaping to be confusing.  I bound off the 4 stitches that the pattern said to do but I think it looks weird!  Anyone finish this sweater??? Will it come out weird?  Also when the pattern says to decrease every row, does it mean right and wrong sides?

Thanks,
Gail

I know what you mean about those stitches looking awkward- instead of a gradual change shown in the schematics, it develops a "valley".
I'm sure that the finished product will look fine though! The neck tie being seamed on at that point should even out the bound off stitches.

I love the color you chose- it really does look like a lucky clover! What kind of yarn are you using though? Did you meet gauge?

I am using petite mandarin.  It's 100% egyptian cotton.  I believe its put out by a norweigian company who's name escapes me at the moment.

I finished the first front piece... again, I didn't really follow the pattern increases and decreases, and I changed the CO number, to make it tons smaller. I'm thinking that it should fit perfectly once I'm done, but right now, the "point" at the top of the front piece just looks kind of funny  Tongue

I'm thinking that tomorrow, I should be done with the second front piece, and start figuring out the schematics for the sleeves. Like many others previously said in this kal, I'm not sure if I'm feeling the bell sleeves. I'll probably knit them straight. What do you think?

I'm done with all of the body pieces, and about 3/4 done with the 1x1 tie (which is by far the most boring thing I have ever knit!). I'm finishing the tie and blocking everything tonight, and seaming tomorrow night after work. So exciting!!

I decided to go with a tapered sleeve, because anything too big on my tiny wrists make them practically disappear (and big sleeves tend to get in the way with... just about everything). The sweater is being held together by about 50 safety pins and a circular woven into one side... and so far, it looks like it's going to fit perfectly! I'll have pics up asap.

DONE!

I'm slouching a bit in this pic, which gives the bulge in the front piece, but it actually fits like a glove! I lurve it!!
