I forgot to post this when it was completed! 


Pattern:  a modified "Panda Ski Jacket" formerly available free at elann.com
modified b/c i couldn't find a page or two and I knit it in the round/in one piece and put in raglan sleeves instead of the sleeves called for.  I made the body and sleeves significantly longer than the pattern called for.  (a common theme with me and my knits...)
Yarn:  frogged Red Heart Cozy Wool from my version of Knitty's Blackberry (it never did fit me right...)

Verdict:  I want to wear this sweater every day.  (I may take it off to wash it or to switch out with my other most recent FO - the cabled cardigan).  I think I'll make a run to the store where I found the Cozy Wool and buy up a bunch more of it to make another (3 or so) in different colors...  Smiley

That looks great & it's a great color, too!

I had bookmarked the panda jacket awhile back---I went to go print it a couple of weeks ago & was sad to find that it's gone gone gone.

Oh, what's the fiber content of the Cosy Wool?

Fantastic job!  I really like the extended ribbing.

That is a very cute sweater.  Was it difficult putting the zipper in?  I always see cardigan patterns that I like, but the zipper makes me nervous. 

That's a pretty color too...

Thanks for all the nice comments!!  Craftsters are the best...  Cheesy

Was it difficult putting the zipper in?  I always see cardigan patterns that I like, but the zipper makes me nervous. 

I decided to baste the zipper in by hand this time (as opposed to my usual obsessive pinning and trying to match up without stabbing myself numerous times) and it made it go much smoother.  The zipper bows up a little bit, but not really all that bad.
