Great job! I like the cabled collar a lot. Top down knitting is the best.

That looks so cute! I've been wanting to make this forever but my knit list has gotten impossibly long with the holidays coming up.

please be honest-- should i redo this grafting?

Someone else suggested that you block it first and I agree. Try to pull at the stitches in opposite angles to set them (if that makes sense). As long as there are no mistakes, blocking should even it out.

here's what I'm doing... sticking the right hand needle into the second stitch on the lefthand needle and doing everything to knit it, except taking it off the left hand needle.  then i sort of double-back and knit the first stitch and pull them both off???  it also creates a little hole... Is this right?  someone help!  thanks!

That sounds right. Just make sure that your keeping your yarn in the back when you go to knit into the first stich. I'm not sure why a hole is created though. Does it still have a little hole after its been knit into in the next row?

Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing it done with Van Dyck yarn.

Here's mine:

I finished about a week ago but had camera issues. I really wanted to make it in a deep red, but I needed to use up my stash. I have a black peacoat that will go great with it when winter comes. This was a fun pattern; I may make more!

Well I finally finished with my seaming and blocking. I used Cascade 128, which is a lovely yarn, but the drape doesn't seem right for the sweater. It was a very fun knit, but it's probably the most unflattering sweater I have ever worn. In a combination of my body type and the chunky yarn, I look about a good 20 lbs heavier in the sweater!

I like the looks of it so much (when I'm not wearing it) that I will keep it around in case I ever became as tiny as the model in the book  Cheesy. Oh well, I am now comfortable with grafting.

I finally got my grafting looking halfway decent. I watched the video on www.knittinghelp.com and then practiced on swatches for awhile. I really don't want to redo this seam again so I am just going to hope that blocking will fix all of uneveness of it.
