I'm still working on my Spring Fling.  Getting close though.  I think I can finish the second sleeve tonight.  Unfortunately I have to rip out alot of the back and re-do it because I must have forgotten to do some decreases at the arm holes.  Argh - I decided to knit the fronts and sleeves before dealing with the back again.  The other thing is that after my decreases I ended up with a different # of stitches (less) than pattern.  I figure it'll all work out in the end and it's because of the lace pattern.  Hmmm.  Anyways - I hope my looks as cute as yours Genevieve because yours looks great!

i just found this KAL -- i have been working on this sweater for a month or so. i was ok with the shaping, but there is a spot that will probably come back to haunt me when i go to seam it.
my question is, though, if anyone else had problems starting the lace on the left front? for some reason, i just cannot get it to work out, i end up with extra stitches left at the end of the row. when it says "Work in Lace Pattern to last st, k1", do you start in with the bracketed part, or do you do the whole line (K1, [k2, yo, sl 1, k1, psso] to last st, k1) and then k1?

I think I just started with the bracketed part of the pattern.  But I just knit stitches that were going to be bound off - didn't do those in pattern. 

I finished on Friday and am really excited!  I really like it and bought a silk shirt to wear with it and an antique-style brooch to fasten it (can't see in pictures under shirt's tie though).

Very nice! I totally love mine. It's the only thing I've knit that I actually wear regularly Smiley

Where it says "work in lace pattern" you are supposed to refer to the pattern notes, and it does include the entire line. I think the key to understanding knitting patterns is to take everything totally literally. It's like science.

i'm just going to make sure to put in a lifeline next time,  so i don't end up ripping out 4 inches of ribbing. doh.

so, obviously, i have been working on this baby off and on since the pattern came out. oi. but i am finally <i>finally</i> done. just in time for winter term reading week. and you know, i really like it!
i moved the hooks (2 of them) down, because i find that anything that opens over my belly just makes me look a little pregnant. and i think i made the sleeves a few inches longer, but that was only because i wasn't paying attention at the time Smiley
good to be finished, though.

sorry for the mirror pictures! (wow, i need to get out the windex, huh?)
