I really like your sweater too!
I think it's perfect for a knock around sweater if you're worried that it's not the most flattering thing you have. Especially since it's so fall-like.
I'm so behind with mine! I've been doing all these swaps and small projects and haven't touched it for a while- although I have finished the bottom piece, but that was easy.

I've finished the bottom for mine. I'm working with Rowan Polar in red hot. So far it is really lovely. I got gauge with size 11 needles and all my measurements are spot on with the book.

I'm sorry so many folks aren't happy with theirs!!! I really like the way yours turned out Pie! It looks like you did a fabulous job of grafting it!!

I also like that it's a pretty quick knit. I finished the bottom in about 3 hours! YAY! Hopefully I will keep loving it as it knits up! I'm a little worried after reading everyone else's responses but at this point I won't really know til I try!!

Okay, I feel like a dolt, but I can't figure out the twisted rib stitch!  I even consulted my "knitting guru" (aka Mom) and she was stymied as well.  Is it really as simple as Ktbl,Ptbl?  We tried that (and some other variations), and to me it looked like plain ol' rib stitch every time.  Someone pls. help clarify--I want to get going on this sweater!  Thanks so much!
Cheers,
Jules

Yep, it's really that simple. As it was explained to me the twisted rib achieves the same look as regular ribbing but it helps the rib lay flatter & helps the drape of the design.

Good luck! I can't wait to see some more finished sweaters!!

I can't wait to see what yours is like when you are done Cheesy  I'd love to see the drape of it, but the stitch definition is good.   Someone else posted about a Knitpicks yarn somewhere (don't think it was in this thread - my brain thinks it was the Blackberry knitalong), that I'm considering getting someone to order for me (to cash in a favour).  Knitpicks Sienna, but I don't know what colour yet - anyone any opinions on that one?  It is close to gauge, and cheap, so may be a good option...

My Filtes Van Dyck just arrived yesterday and I have begun knitting the lower body... This is my first time reading a lace chart and I wanted a little feedback to see if I am doing it right... My husband actually figured out the "LT" part of the chart which i was doing wrong... As for the "RT" what I'm ending up with looks like a k1f&b with a little "bar" going across the second stitch. 

here's what I'm doing... sticking the right hand needle into the second stitch on the lefthand needle and doing everything to knit it, except taking it off the left hand needle.  then i sort of double-back and knit the first stitch and pull them both off???  it also creates a little hole... Is this right?  someone help!  thanks!

That sounds right. Just make sure that your keeping your yarn in the back when you go to knit into the first stich. I'm not sure why a hole is created though. Does it still have a little hole after its been knit into in the next row?

Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing it done with Van Dyck yarn.

I think it looks right... we shall see when i get it together enough to post pics... Now I'm to the part where I graft top and bottom together... i wanted to do that before i sewed the sleeves in... what i'm thinking is to not bind off the upper piece and graft them together just like a pair of socks on two needles... has anyone else tried this?  i don't see the point of binding off the top piece.
