that's a beauuuutiful cardigan. you win. now, a question... how can you get old issues of VK? do they sell them at stores? do any libraries have them?

My library does carry them.  You might want to check there first.

Thanks for the kind comments, folks! 

To answer your questions:
-It took maybe two months to make, but I did rip out one half of the front and start over because I realized I made a mistake back at the beginning. 
-It's the smallest size (chest ~31"). 
-The reason this was harder was because the collar requires a lot of increasing that you have to remember to do while also remembering to do the side and raglan shaping.  I didn't find the print too small to read (although I do indeed like to photocopy patterns so I can write all over them), but keeping all the different shaping directions in my head was difficult.  Maybe a chart would help.  But I was too lazy to make one. 
-I would look at your local library (I know that some branches of the Minutemant Library system around Boston carry Vogue Knitting, for example).  I bought this as a back issue from a LYS actually.  They tend to carry magazines from the past few years that didn't sell immediately.  Whereas a bookstore like Borders won't keep those.

Yeah Webs! I work there!

That yarn is awesome, it has more body than Cashmerino, great for cables. And it's washable! The only drawback is that we only have two colors left and there are about 55 yards per ball--I hate that. 100 yards should be the minimum in my opinion.

Great sweater, looks like it fits to a T.
