Wow!  I love your color choices.  That's one gorgeous sweater you're making.

That looks beautiful.  I guess there is hope.  What size needles are you using for the body?

I ripped mine all out.  I really want to start up again, but I am helping my daughter with a speech and I am trying to get ready to go for Stitches West on Wednesday.  I still have homework to do for that, but I would rather work on Venezia.

Thanks everyone, I'm using knitpicks circulars 0, 1, 2. The 2 is 3mm, 1 is 2.5 mm and 0 is 2 mm. I'm using the 2 for the colorwork so it should be the same, I must just be working it really tightly.

it looks beautiful! i just started the  armhole steeks/shaping. i'm trying very hard to enjoy the journey of this sweater and not push myself to get to the destination, but i am so eager for it to be done.

i knit for 9 hours yesterday and my neck and shoulders are killing me!

Do you mind sharing your colors?  I'm still so torn over what to do.  I know I can't swap out colors myself, no one around the bay area sells the Jamieson, but I not sure about the pattern colors either. 

What colors did you use?

Where in the Bay Area, goldengrrl?  Uncommon Threads in downtown Los Altos has tons.  They even mailed me a couple balls of a color they were out of, at no extra charge.  It really does help is nice to see the yarn in person.

goldengrrl - It's really easy to swap colors actually, I bought mine online so I didn't see the colors in person. I kept the pattern colors the same, so Sand, Mooskit/White, Mooskit, and Yellow Ochre, and I kept the border the same, Old Gold. Then I just decided I wanted greens and picked five of them going from light to dark, Pistachio, Chartreuse, Granny Smith, Ivy, Olive. So you could easily pick a color theme you want and pick five that you like going from light to dark and change the border color to match it better if you wanted. I had a lot of fun picking out the colors, if you want, PM and I could help you pick some out.

Hi everyone - I have almost finished the body. Here's a progress shot (please excuse the ungodly amount of remotes). I still have to tack the bottom, which is why its curling up.

-Miss Lulu-  Your progress looks great!!  I really like the subdued color palette- did you just use 2 colors there? 

Question for those who've made it past the steeking- do you find the sizing of the pattern to be pretty true? 

I'd like to make this sweater, but I found the last sweater I made by Eunny (the deep v argyle) to be really long in the bodice..  I know I will probably need to do some math and serious row gauge counting to make this sweater- but generally, does the fit seem true according to the pattern sizing?

Wow, it looks great!  You seem to be moving along with it very quickly!
