Well I just started mine tonight.  I forgot I had some really bulky yarn from a poncho project gone wrong.  I think I might have the neck opening a little small but we will see!!  I will have pictures up ASAP!

Thanks! The one I used is a JoAnn yarn from their Sensations Bellezza Collection called "Dolcetto" in pink. It was inexpensive and really soft and fluffy. I got 2 skeins for $8 and didn't even use them all up for this project.

OOH that stuff is great.  I made a cable knit hat out of it, and it's so warm and cozy.  That stuff is wonderful to knit with, too.   So soft.  I think I'll use that for this project.  I'm having surgery in December, so once the Christmas gift projects are done I'll need something to keep me from going crazy while I'm stuck laying around the house for a few weeks.  (Plus since I'm having breast reduction surgery to go from a DD to a B, I'll need cute new tops in styles like this that I currently can't wear!)

I finally cast on for mine yesterday using some crazy mystery yarn I picked up from another knitter a couple months ago. It's such a quick project!. After just a couple hours or so I'm nearly ready to split the sleeves and body. Thanks so much for creating the pattern julsey!

ARGH! I think I'm going to run out of yarn. I see some ripping in my future.  Cry

i just cast on a little while ago, and i'm about halfway through the neck ribbing.  i decided to give it a try in a smaller gauge, so wish me luck!  i'm really hoping to finish by later today. Smiley

Here is my version in Softee Chunkee + vintage brown that just happened to match and knit to the same gauge.
I started on 11's, then switched to 10 1/2 circulars when things got too crowded. Luckily it didn't make much of a gauge difference.
When I cast off the first time, it was too short and horribly unflattering. Impatience gets me every time. So, I went back, made it a little longer, and added three sets of short rows to counteract the problems with the back length (first time- yay!) The first set went between the imaginary arm seams, the second 3 sts in towards the center, and the third 3 more sts in. I did two more green rows, and began the ribbing. I think my ribbing may be a bit longer, too.
Done in a weekend, and finished with a vintage pearl button.
And here it is in action Friday night!
BTW, I made that shot. Just, you know, for the record.
Awesome pattern! Thanks!
PS: It took just slightly more than one skein of yarn. Which, besides busting stash, rings up at well under $4.00 for 2 skeins of Sofffftee Chunkkeeee. I hate brand-name misspellings.

A while back I said I might do this if I could talk a friend into it too.  Well, she was a no go, but I did try this myself and it came out pretty cute.  I used Knitpicks  Wool Of the Andes (X2) in daffodil.  Its not nearly as cute as the ones on this KAL because it is a bit chunky, but I finished (hooray for me), which is rare and FULFILLING.  I would post pictures but I am not sure how; the photos my camera takes are too big (as in bytes or whatever) to upload (any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am not at all computer savvy).  Oh and I did an increase on both ends every 4th row so it overlaps in the front.
Thanks to everyone for the inspiration to start and finish, and thanks to julsey723 for the pattern!
