I've been eyeing that pattern for a couple of months now... a KAL might be the kick I need to start it!

I love yours!  The color and length are great.  Glad to see someone else finished it as well.

I'm excited that there's already a knitalong for this! I'm planning on making this my first sweater and I'm pretty nervous! I've only knit squares and rectangles until now.  I do need to buy the Knitpicks interchangable needles first  Lips sealed I plan on ordering those either this week or next.  I have a question... are the needle size changes necessary? By that I mean changing from 10 to 10.5 or whatever those small changes are. 

Also, I already have my yarn! Eco-Ways Bamboo Wool in Peacock.  That yarn should be ok, right? I actually don't know much about yarn weights and I just realized I might have gotten the wrong thing!

If you don't change needle size the cuffs and band at the bottom of the jumper won't be as snug, not a huge deal though.x

I am not familiar with that yarn but when I looked it up it seems like it may be a bit thinner than what the pattern called for, but I am not 100% sure (hard to gauge much from internet pictures).  The best thing to do is just make a swatch and figure out the gauge before you start.  You can always increase or decrease the needle size to get the yarn to be the proper gauge if you want.

Yea I was talking to lapoli about it the other day and I don't think it's gonna work. Sad I might still swatch it to see but I'm pretty sure I'll have to buy more yarn. I'm not that talented of a knitter to make big changes in a pattern! I basically need to do it exactly by the book.
