Adorable, witty, seasonal -- who could ask for more? Fabulous job. Thanks for sharing.

I must add to the compliments on the fade. I haven't seen anything knit like that before, and you have accomplished it seamlessly. Congrats!!

wickedgoodknitter:  yes!  keep going!  I encourage you to do it because it is worth it in the end. and yes, distraction of tv, ipod, movies, baseball games, etc, are indeed needed!  good luck!

Thank you for the encouragement. I think I have about six rows to go. Even a five-hour Red Sox game couldn't bring me through the rest. (I put it down and fell asleep for about two innings, but awoke to see a 1:30 a.m. heartbreaking finish for us Red Sox fans.)

Enough about baseball. Opinion time, if you can picture this:  My sweater is knit in a series of graduated blues and greens, and ends with a round band of chocolate brown. Originally, I thought I'd knit the sleeves in the brown, but now that I see it, I think it might look more put together if they were knit in the same color yarn as the round from which they emerge, which is green (sage to be exact). (Does that make sense?) Anyone have thoughts on whether it would be more aesthetically pleasing to do it this way rather than going with the brown. I feel another trip to my LYS coming on, as if I make the switch I have too much brown and not enough green. However, after all the time put into this one, I don't want to utter the words, "I should have . . ." Thanks for any input!

I have enjoyed knitting this sweater, but I agree that the long rounds toward the end are getting monotonous. I took today off because my hands ached from hours and hours of going round and round at top speed. Thank goodness the Red Sox are on tonight to distract me from my plight. (Maybe I should make it for a smaller person and call it done, but I've come this far . . . )

A great gift for the neighborhood moms during New England winters at the school bus stop. Thanks for posting the tute too.

What an impressive variety. I'm sure your year was never boring!

You can just transfer your stitches to a scrap piece of yarn (make sure it's long enough) using a yarn needle.  Then just transfer the stitches back to your circular when you're finished measuring.

Good luck and welcome to craftster!

My thanks to MairWear for the quick assistance and the welcome. That sounds like it will work perfectly.

This thread finally (and happily) goaded me to join craftster after much lurking. I am in the midst of the adult pinwheel sweater, and it is going okay. One question though: Mine is now scrunched up on the longest circulars (so many stitches, it takes me 20 minutes to knit a round). How can I measure when I've knit enough rounds to make it big enough for me? I was thinking of transferring stitches to one or more circulars, until I can get it flat to tell the size. However, something tells me there must be an easier way. Huh I appreciate any advice.

I'd love to try when I complete a few WIPs. A little nervous as I'm an intermediate knitter, and I don't know if I could recognize/adjust a pattern mistake without too much frustration.
