Kookoosp, looks like you're a pro at this pattern now!  I love the color, and the seed stitch looks very nice. 

Aw, shucks.  Thanks for the compliment!   Cheesy  *blushing*

Oh, everyone's looks great! I love that color, btw, kookoosp.

Okay! Well, I cast on for #2 last night. Dark blue Simply Soft. This one is for one of my daughter's friends. I really like this pattern. Looks great, and very speedy!

But I've been looking at the mods others have made, to the sleeves and the length, etc. And I think the NEXT one I make will be for me.

Yeah! I love the changes people have made, too... any tips for making 3/4 length sleeves as far as shaping?  Actually... any tips for shaping the body of the sweater if you make it longer, also?

Well, my main issue is going to be boobage. I'm thinking I'm definitely adding some short rows and making it longer, more like kookoosp's. Someone else here has done one that's more of a cropped length and that looked really nice too. I'm short, so cropped length works for me really well.

As for the sleeve shaping, I'm not sure I'd decrease all that much, unless I went below the elbow. Hm, but that might be cool, too.

This pattern is so versatile! Maybe I will have to do a couple more of these!  Wink

ok, so I finished the length, didn't think and did one row of ribbing.  Then I realized I should have tried it on first to see if it fit/was long enough.
Well, the sleeves are perfect, not too tight and will probably grow a slight amount with blocking.  However, I do think it's a bit too short.  Do you ladies agree?

Sorry for the crappy photo, but it's hard to take one of yourself with yarn still on the needles.   Roll Eyes
I guess I'll undo the row of ribbing and knit til it's a bit longer.  The back is definitely a bit short.    Not tonight though.. I'm done with knitting for today.  gosh
I'm not sure if I want to make a couple increases or not.

Hmm, maybe like, four to six more rows before ribbing?  Just an idea....
