Is anyone else working on this pattern?  I'm moving right on up the sleeves.  I'm nearing the finish on them.  I think it's going to come out looking gorgeous!  I can't wait to get started on the body.  Here's a pic of my progress as of last weekend.  The sleeves are much  longer now.

Thanks mo!  I actually ripped out the sleeves.  I made them a tinsy bit too small.  I should have stuck with the right stitch ratio and not questioned AV's measurments. Smiley  It's fine though.  Frogging doesn't bother me a bit.  I've ordered some circs to knit the sleeves and body up on.  As soon as they come in, I'm giong to get back to knitting this.  It's such a fun knit!!

If you're tempted, I'd give it a try.  I love this pattern!

This is definitely on my Fall must-knit list.  Trebuchet, curlymo, you Sweaters are LOVELY! 

Atouria, I love the color of yours!  I can't wait to see the finished object.

If anyone out there wants to get going on this pattern, i've restarted it.  I've actually gotten the sleeves and back complete.  I'm about 3/4 done with the front.  I've still got the collar and the dreaded seaming to go.  I know it's still really hot everywhere, heck I'm in Louisiana, but I've got to get my fall knitting done before the fall semester starts and reduces my knitting time to nada.

OK, I'm all done with everything but the last couple rows of the collar.  For those of you who have finished it, Tre and Mo, can you recall or do you have notes on when you knit the collar? 

The pattern states to do the 18 rows casting on 4 sts at the beg of each row, then CO 33 sts at beg of next 2 rows.  The next directions say to work even until piece measures 3.5" from beg.  Just by looking at the row gauge on the pattern, that means you'd only work about 4 rows before you start binding off. 

Do you guys remember?  I'm working mine up it a bigger gauge and my alterations have been fine until I got to the collar.  I'm concerned that the collar isn't going to be wide enough at the bottom.

Ok, this may have to be added to my ever growing list of projects to do.  I'm working on my first sweater now and since people have said this is fast, I might just have to try it.

Go for it LolaBella!  I forgot to update it here, but I did finish mine.  It's linked on my blog in my finished projects.  It was really fun to knit and relatively fast! Smiley

I'm about to finish this sweater - maybe today. I am confused with the collar. It says to knit 3.5" from beginning after casting on the lastt 33 sts on each end. I have 4" now. Is it supposed to be 3.5" from the last cast on edge? I am going to have to assume that.

Here is my front and back - I am also using Elann - Peruvian Highland Wool and I can tell this is going to be one of my most flattering knit sweaters. I know this yarn will pill, but I have a electric sweater shaver.
