I will be knitting this as soon as Rogue is off the needles!

I'm going to get rid of the cut out bit, make it full length and use some large novelty white buttons...

I'll be interested to see how the final versions turn up.  It looks really cute on the model, but I'm somewhat pear-shaped with a really short torso, so I'm not sure if it's the right sweater for me.  I'm in a huge knitting slump right now and the last thing I need is another sweater that makes me look short and dumpy.  But I'll be watching this thread and cheering all of you guys on.  Go forth, knit, and be happy!  And post pics!  Smiley

P.S.  In the meantime, could anyone tell me what yarn the pattern calls for?

I believe it calls for Wool-Ease from Lion Brand.  (I don't know for sure though. I have a photo copy of the pattern and I am missing the first page of it with the yarn/gauge requirements.)  I am using *gasp* Red Heart "Soft" yarn for mine.  I, too, wasn't sure how the pattern would actually work up and so I was a bit leary of dropping a bunch of cash on yarn for this project and then have it be awful.


How's everyone coming?  I am working on the sleeves right now. (Why do sleeves take so LONG...!) Can't wait to see FOs.

It definitely calls for Lion Brand Wool-Ease. 6(6,7,8,9) balls for 34(36, 39, 42, 46) inch bust.

I haven't been getting too far. That said, I only started on Friday. I've got one front done (i started with a front as a "gauge swatch") and I'm done the ribbing for the back. I think this one will be pretty quick to knit up.

Oooh, I definitely have some Wool-Ease in my stash.  I wonder if my [long-waisted] sister needs a sweater...

I'm joining, but I'm a little nervous. I've never knit a sweater before... or anything other than a rectangle, actually. Wish me luck.

I got the yarn for this...it will be my first use of recommended yarn in the recommended color.  I love the green!

I am also going to get rid of the cut out at the bottom.  Its a cute design feature, but unfortunately, it will "feature" my mid-section too much.

I'm pissed that I had to order the wool-ease online to get the green color.  Neither Joann's nor Michael's carried the color in the store.  BUT Joann.com has free priority shipping over $25 right now, so that made me feel a bit better.

Anyone have any progress pics yet?

I'm going to wait on a couple of people to finish before I decide for sure on this one. I love it and really want to knit it, but I don't know how it will look on me. Plus, I have a couple of things on the needles right now anyway, so I'll probably start this one in a couple of months, or however long it takes me to make up my mind!

This is somewhere down the line in my to-do list.  Just wish I weren't such a slow knitter.  I'm thinking green too, but just a bit more olive drabish.
