I finished the Left Front last night?  Is there any reason why pattern calls for the LF to measure 24" and the BACK to measure 23"?  Does anyone know why?

Yoo Hoo, anyone out there?  Or is the shaping totally killing everyone off?

I don't think that it's the shaping........ I promised myself that I would finnish off this purple sweater that I have been working on since November....... it has been a long road, and even though I am making a valiant effort, it is STILL ON THE NEEDLES!!!!!! GAAAAAAAAAA
I beg your pardon.
Anyway, I still have intentions of coming back, I did hear someone mention previously Necia, that they too had that issue....... I am not sure if they solved it, but you can always contact the designer through knitty I think.....
Let me know, when I get there I don't want to have the same question.. Grin

MairWear, good gracious, I hope that it is fabulous yarn and you love it so much that this is your favorite sweater, and you forget how long they made you wait! Wink

DUDE, I KNOW!  It's crazy!  I got my yarn on ebay (that was the cheapest) but I guess I better contact the gal I bought it from again!  And yeah, this better be my favorite sweater.  I actually started a different sweater (top down raglan... my first!) that I'm already a quarter of the way through.  So, that's keeping me busy at least!  HAHA!

I should have a finished Starsky by this weeks end.  I would totally focus on the RF again today, but I have a ton of laundry I should really attend to.  I don't trust taking Starsky with me to the laundromat, so I'll be working on a mitten instead.

I did find out the answer to my question, and the fronts are longer to accomodate the girls, just in case anyone else was wondering.

I am, unfortunately, out for the time being. I just started classes again and every single waking moment will now be devoted to rote memorization. I can't wait to see everyone's sweaters--hopefully I can hop back in soon.

I've got the back done and am just starting the sides.  slooow going for  me...I can't seem to find the motivation to pick it back up once I've put it down. :-/  It WILL get done though.

Ive finished all the pieces and the collar.  I'm now in seaming land, which is taking FOREVER.  I'm not all too pleased with the armhole, I think it may be too big, I should've started the decreases sooner.  I'm trying to figure away to tack it down without it looking too bulky, even though it's knit in bulky yarn.  In between seaming, I need to find something else to knit, seaming puts me to sleep and I don't want to rush it to f it all up.

Well, I'm jumping into this a little late.  I've just done a stretch of smaller projects, and am ready for something big (of course, I am ignoring the partially-finished Central Park Hoodie I've got on the needles...oops).

I have a big bag of handpaintedyarn.com's bulky merino from a couple Christmases back (it was a gift) -- I had wanted to make some sort of comfy shawl-collared sweater out of it.  I have my concerns about using a varigated yarn for this pattern (I don't want the cable pattern to disappear).  I went ahead and got started anyway, though, and I think it'll be okay.  The color I'm using (Pearl Ten) is gray with purple/green undertones, and doesn't have any major color changes.  It is also insanely soft, and hopefully will wear a little better than the worsted weight single ply (this is 6-ply).

For those of you who are working on it/have made it, did you ever reach a point where you didn't have to reference the pattern chart legend?  I feel like I can't remember what the symbols mean to save my life...having it in black and white doesn't help (I may make a color-coded version).
