I think I remember seeing a picture of a finished Starsky at the knitalong section of the knittinghelp.com forum. 

I'm nearly finished with the left front of mine.  All I can say is, keep good notes when you start the neckline and armhole shaping.  It's not hard, but you need to keep up  with things.  I'm really enjoying making my first cardigan!

Okay everyone... I have gathered up the courage to restart my collar. I am going to use the new fix for it that Jordiana posted. I hope to works out. I would rather have a collar that is too big than one that was too little. I also picked up more stiches over the fronts, because the once every four rows was too far apart.

designdiva18- I think you might have been reading the directions for the collar wrong. It dosen't say to pick up  one stitch for every 4 rows, it says 3 stitches for every 4 rows.

Jax -- Ha! You're right! Oh well, I fixed it this time and I added some pick up stitches around the neckline as well, because that had been pulling too. I am about halfway done with the extra short rows and it looks much better. Maybe my gauge isn't what I thought that it was.

I promise myself I'm gonna pick a day this week, and continue working on the sleeves.  Then it's back to the front portions.  Maybe if I pick a day, I can hold myself accountable, and move this from wip to fo.

I've been working on mine for weeks, and it seems to stay the same length no matter how much I knit! 

C'mon... hasn't anyone finished?  I could use some inspiration to get moving on this!

I think this is a fast knit (because of the bulky yarn), but I haven't had that much time to work on it lately.  I am working on the sleeves now, which is a bit boring after that awesome banana leaf pattern.  I can't wait to start on the collar!  My only complaint is that every skein of Sierra has had at least one hard little knot in it.

I'm slowly making progress. I have the back, both fronts, the collar and one sleeve finished and put togather, and I'm working on the belt and the second sleeve now. I had to alter my sleeves a bit. i'm short and have short arms, so instead of making the sleeves the reccomended 23 inches (before sleeve cap shaping) , mine are 18.5 inches.
