Thanks for all the kind comments!

Okay - modifications were minimal.  I adjusted to make a 35" bust, casting on fewer stitches, shrinking the garter stitch panels on the sides of the body accordingly.  I shortened the body - I think maybe knitting for 13" before joining the sleeves. Sleeves were knit shorter and skinnier.  I used the Zimmerman ratio (approximately) to come up with the final number of stitches for the sleeves.  I also decreased the yolk depth.  I followed the short row, decrease row order given in the pattern, just reduced the number of short rows and the overall depth at the center back.  (I measured another raglan style sweater that I had to get an idea of appropriate measurements.)

I used seven skeins of the Classic Elite.  In fact, I had just enough to cast off.  Yarn arrived at the end of August - I cast off on Oct. 15 (with a few weeks of no knitting at all somewhere in the middle).

A quick and easy knit!

Pattern if from IK Fall '07.  Original pattern is a men's sweater.  A swatch and a little math and voila - a woman's sweater.  Knit in Classic Elite Skye Tweed on US 7 needles.  I'm really happy with the color and fit.  And finished just in time for the fall weather!

Take a look at these knit granny squares.  Maybe you can find something that will work.

Or you could always learn to crochet!

Adorable!  Looks like it's a perfect fit, too.

I've found that with "sticky" yarns - like wool - you can weave the end through the middle of a piece of yarn.  So when your end is securely woven, use your needle to split a strand and pull your loose end through (a last pass, if you will), cut off the remaining yarn, and the end will sort of tack itself into place.
Slick yarns...I'm in the same boat.  Ends always seem to work themselves loose.

Those are so damn cute I almost fell out of my chair.  Nice work!

Excellent!  That's just what I wanted to hear.  That means a little extra money towards a ball winder!
