Ooh, I love it!  I've been coveting this pattern for a long time, and I'm delighted to see that it works up as cute as the pictures!

Great job!  That is a beautiful sweater.  You have some really great pieces already complete!

Can I ask a web site question - where did you get your percent complete status bar in the "Currently Knitting" section?

I got the percentage bars from Anna Knits - her website is here: http://annamation.ca/annaknits/blog.  Very easy to use.

Gloriana,
I had trouble finding that link, but did find a different one. I love that bar that you use!

Your Apricot Jacket looks great.  It looks really good on you.

I've been wanting to knit this one for awhile and just found this issue of Rebecca at my LYS. Do you think this pattern would work okay in a wool or wool blend?  I could use cotton but I'm thinking I may get more wear from a wool sweater.  I'm just curious as to whether the detailing and drape of the sweater will work as well with wool.  Thanks!

legallyblonde - I don't see why it wouldn't work with a wool yarn.  You may want to do a google search for the sweater (a lot of people have made this one) and see if anyone has made it in wool.  Since the yarn called for in the pattern is a cotton/acrylic blend, you may want to sub a wool/acrylic blend....  just my thoughts.

Thanks!  I tried to search blogs to find one made of wool but I didn't see any. Most have used cotton.   I have wool and Cotton-Ease that would be the same gauge as the Rowan you used leftover from other projects so I may try swatching a bit to see what I like best.
