I may be too late to join in on this, but I finally got a copy of the magazine over Thanksgiving and I've got some Jameson's Shetland in Aster that I'm planning to use.  I will probably cast on later today and work on it between all my holiday knitting.  The gauge swatch (came out perfect) was turned into a catnip-filled cat toy that my cat and kitten are fighting over.  Guess I'll have to make them another one soon.

I'm still working on it too.  The long weekend (made longer by 2 snow days - woo hoo) has helped progress.  I'm almost done with the first sleeve then I'll have to do the DREADED seaming.  Sad

I didn't want to make this at first, but after seeing everyone's great versions, I decided to try it.  I haven't really done cabling before, just with Fetching, so it will be interesting.  It might take me a while, I have 3 kids, and I don't work on complicated stuff with them around.  I got gauge, so I'll be starting soon.

thanks for the compliments guys!

indieanajess - the thumbholes were actually really easy. i looked at a few storebought shirts with thumbholes (yay delia's!) and they put them right on the seam. basically, i just added extra length to the sleeves when i knit them and then left a hole when i seamed them up. they gained their roundish shape just from the way the ribbing pulls the sleeve. i did whipstitch around the hole for some extra durability (and as a way to carry the seaming yarn around the hole so i wouldn't have to weave in the ends). the hardest part, i thought, was making them match, but then i have that problem with everything vaguely symmetrical.

Hi. I have a question on this pattern. I just started tonite. I am starting with the sleeves. I  did the ribbing and have started the cabling. It says while doing the cabling at the same time to increase on both ends every 8th row. First question is, should I increase into the very first and very last stitches? Or should I knit one, increase, knit till one stitch is left, increase, knit 1? Next question, it says every 8th row. This would be a wrong side row. What increase should I use on a purl row? Thanks.

Yeah, you might want to k1, then increase, since you need a nice edge for seaming. Also, you don't have to increase on a wrong side if you don't want to--just stick an extra row in there and increase on the right side.

Glad to see others are still working on this! I swatched this weeks ago, but just cast on last night. I only had my 6s available, so got through the ribbing on the back and both front sides. After working on a neverending k2p2 ribbed scarf, this just flew by.

I loved the green in original and need to branch out from my usual black or tan sweaters, so I'm using KnitPicks Swish Superwash in Dublin.

here it is!
i also added some length to the sleeves so that i could make thumbholes on the seams.

i love it.

This is brilliant!  It looks wonderful on you.  I just picked up my pattern and yarn last week...a little late to the KAL.
