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?

Where do you live? Zellers in Canada carries nothing but Lion Brand. If not Zellers is like Kmart, so you might be able to get it there if they sell yarn?

I'm going to hold out on this one until I see the sizing. The model is really skinny. Is anyone knitting it in a medium or large?

I can*not* get the gauge right! On size 8s, 18 stitches by 24 rows (stockinette) should be 4". Mine was 3". Sooo I decided to see if they would work as the smaller needles. 24 stitches by 30 rows of k3, p3 rib (which the pattern has done on 6s, but I did on 8s) should be 4", and mine is just under. ::sigh:: I now have to go get some new needles. Do you all think 9s and 11s should do it?

There is lots of Lion Brand around, just not in the green.  The colors that they stock are plain FUGLY!  At least for this.

I am also concerned on the sizing.  It says the model is wearing the small, which according to the dimensions, is the size that I would make...HOWEVER, I am NOT the same size as the model!  I guess I just keep an eye on the sizing as I go along! 

I think that I am going to swatch with some woolease that I already have in the stash, just to get an idea of what I'm dealing with.

I hear ya on the fug Zellers yarn.

I'm also making the small, and I was worried about the sizing too, but it seems to be coming out to the measurements of a cardi I have that fits me well (my gauge is perfect with Patons Classic Wool). My intent is for it to be pretty fitted (less than an inch of ease), because a loose, cropped cardigan is definitely NOT the way to go on my body.

Also, I posted a progress pic on my blog. Not much to look at though - a couple blobs of black stockinette! Woo!

I started this sweater last week, using Caron Simply Soft in "Violet" (dark purple-ish).  I began with the mysterious (to me, at least) side panel so I could check my gauge while actually finishing part of the sweater.   I suppose two should be made and their positioning will become clear once the rest of the sweater is finished....  but without a picture of the back, I'm mildly confused.   
Otherwise, I love the way this thing's turning out! I'm halfway done with a sleeve.

Strange how that other post disappeared! Oh well...I am mostly finished (about half way maybe). This is my first sweater and so far so good.

Of course the hot weather is not inspiring me to pick up the needles and work with wool...

Hey kiddos.  Haven't made much progress on this since my last post.

I did come across  this post recently (on the Knit.1 Magazine's blog) that shows a picture of the mysterious side panels.  It shows some pictures of the side so you can get an idea of how the panels are used.

Can't wait to see some progress pics!  I'm still on Sleeve Island...

Wow. It is a completely different colour of green in that photo. I'm glad I didn't buy that yarn because I don't like the colour. The picture in the magazine was no doubt photoshopped.

I'm working on the back, and I had a question. After the ribbing you work stockinette for 2.5 inches, then work in some increases. After that, it says to work evenly until piece measures 10.5 (I think) inches from the beginning.

My question (well, questions): When it says to work evenly, does that just mean straight stockinette? Also, the 10.5 inches-- is that from the beginning of the stockinette or of the entire piece? Thanks in advance, guys!

Work evenly definitely means to work in stockinette in this case - it normally means to keep the pattern the same without working any increases or decreases. As for the 10.5 inches, I took it to mean from the beginning of the entire piece. Given the length in the photo, I think that's probably the right way to interpret it. I just held it up to me to get a general idea of what the 10.5 inches looked like.

In other news, I just got some buttons for mine on eBay. Check out my blog for a pic - they're awesome!
