Scarletkittycat, Thanks so much for the yarn link... I almost cried when I realized I would be paying over $60 for yarn!  I thought well, there goes that idea...Just ordered my yarn though and can't wait to get started!

ysolda, can't wait to see the sweater!  Congrats!

My yarn arrived today as well as 52 knitting needles I won from ebay for $16!!!  Yay! I would like to know, Ysolda, did you notice any mistakes in this pattern, or can you direct me to a page with corrections? I checked out your blog, and your corset pullover looks great!  I can't wait to get started!
gotta do a tedious gauge swatch first!!!  off to knit!

I didn't notice any actual mistakes. The charts are given in a kind of weird way - I didn't actually follow the stitch patterns properly, accidently at first and then decided I liked my simpler version better in the yarn I used.
Also, perhaps obviously I did the sleeves completley differently.
The only problem I have with the fit is the shoulders, I think it was designed for someone with really round sloping shoulders, there is short row shaping at the shoulders and personally I think it is too much. I know a few bloggers have said that the neckline ended up too wide - I think this problem is mainly that the shoulders fall outward, I'm trying to fix it by blocking but at the moment the shoulders fall off.

Ysolda... another question if ya don't mind.... Undecided I started the lace chart last night but am not sure if the first square (with the "b" in it) is the selvedge stitch or should I knit the selvedge stitch and then follow the chart? and... when there is a grey square (no stitch) does that mean to move to the "sl 2tog kwise, k1, p2sso" ? 
Thank you for your infinite knitting wisdom!

you knit the first stitch and then follow the chart. You can double check this because all of the cast on number of stitches should be 3 stitches (the 2 selvage sts and the last one of the pattern that is outside the red 'repeat' box) + a multiple of 6 (the number of sts in eace pattern repeat). This works so you know thats definitely what you're doing Smiley

infinite knitting wisdom... yeah right

Thanks for your help. after starting over 5 times yesterday ( I am determined to make this perfect!) I took out my calculator to figure out the pattern.  I also printed my pattern in black and white, so I didn't notice the red pattern repeat until about the third attempt (since mine was a grey pattern repeat). All is well now and I am finally up to the bodice pattern. There will be no tv watching while knitting this beast.

good luck with it... those red boxes were what i meant when i said the charts were stupid, at least on the bodice pattern its easy to memorise so you shouldn't have to refer to the chart after your first few rows

Angry Angry Angry Angry
This pattern is really making me doubt my intelligence. Three rows up the bodice pattern and my knitting has no definite pattern.  I see frogging back to the beginning and picking up all those stitches in my future.
resisting the urge to curse since children are in the room.  Realizing I am not as good of a knitter as I thought I was when I made up my mind to knit this lovely sweater.  ( I must admit my DH is being very encouraging) brownie points for him!

EDIT: broke down and emailed Interweave and begged for help... within 2 hours Lisa Shroyer emailed me back!  She took the time to explain stitch by stitch how to read the pattern! very helpful indeed! Now I can try to tackle this pattern once again!

Thank you Lisa!
