I love the mods you did.  Great job. 

May I ask about taking hand knits to the sewing machine though, how does that work (the though of trying it scares me)  Wink

Thanks!  Regarding taking it to a sewing machine - initially this was knit with steeks, which you secure (either with a sewing machine or with crochet) and you then cut it.  Scary the first time, but this pattern really holds your hand through it.  Steeks are great for making a cardigan in the round and then just cutting up the middle; for doing a v-neck and not having to work flat; they're good for all sorts of things!

Unfortunately my Deep V had too deep armholes to make sleeves work, so I just sewed it where I thought was a good spot and went for it.  The sweater wasn't usable as it was, so it was worth it to me.  Plus, I wouldn't have been able to from anything above the v-neck due to the steek, so frogging wasn't my best option.  I got lucky that it turned out just as I had planned, but I'm pretty fearless about taking knitting to a sewing machine now!

Love this. I'm not usually so crazy about knitted sweaters but this is amazing! The yarn on the sleeves is so cool with the flecks of pink and such, and it's very flattering, it makes your waist look tiny! I want one!! So fierce.

This came out great, I love the grayish greenish yarn with the flecks in it, it's beautiful.

I had the exact same issue with mine, the armholes came out way too big.  And I have the same frustrated "look how much extra shoulder room I have" mirror shot to go with it Smiley   I tried taking a sewing machine to it too but it just didn't lay or work right.  So I'm thinking of felting mine and making it into a bag that I'll use much more than I'd wear an ill-fitting sweater vest.   Such a shame because the rest of mine fits perfectly.

Yeah, the Peace Fleece yarn is quite lovely, especially after it's washed. 

Rachillsk8 - I'm sorry that yours didn't turn out well!  I know that a lot of people who knit this sweater had issues with too-deep armholes and I did have to adjust my first one, but I didn't pay enough attention when I knit this one, especially when having to adjust for a smaller armhole depth with sleeves.  I had to do a bit of creative sewing to make it all work, but it worked out fairly easily for me, thankfully.  The argyle pattern would make a lovely felted bag, and it really is better than having a sweater that you won't wear.

Absolutely GORGEOUS, I adore the tweedy yarn you used.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
