hst, trust me, I understand. I'm a teacher, too! And I was teaching full-time when I was working on my masters; I remember like it was yesterday. Hang in there! Tell your hubby to finish the painting himself! This time of year is so difficult for us teachers. I still have conferences tomorrow and Tuesday. Thank goodness for a 4 day weekend!!!

Take care,


How do I know about reality? I just play with sticks and string.

I think I may frog my blackberry and make this...I'm not sure the yarn will work with the gauge tho!  Gotta swatch and find out!

Thanks Karma!
I think only another teacher would understand....
I did finish painting the hallway, and I have today off, Wednesday, so maybe I can get some knitting done!  5 day weekend!!!
Happy holiday everyone!

julsey 723, you should join us!  I think as long as you make sure that the raglan length is the right length you can use whatever guage that you want.

i just bought the yarn to make this sweater.  i'm using jaeger chamonix.  i bought enough to double strand it.  i'm not sure if i'll need to, though--just wanted to be safe.

has anybody else made any progress?  i found a random blog that said the sweater takes way more yarn than it says and is loose fitting at the collar.  of course i don't know now where i saw that.

I believe this is where you see it?

I haven't made much progress because of the aforementioned excuses, also the damn holidays....
Long story short, I have done to below the armpits, enough to try it on and it looks like it is going to fit very nicely, not like the baggy picture in the above link at all.  That person may have chosen too large of a size or was off on gauge.

Well I had lost my steam on this project, until today.  I am woking on this again, along with one more x-mas gift to finish and a baby sweater, but I think I might be able to finish it soon.  I am excited about it again.
However I am thinking to changing the sleeves to 3/4 sleeves....
Any thoughts?

I do like 3/4 sleeve cardis, but I wonder if it would be practical with such a bulky knit? What did you decide to do?

I'm still looking at this pattern and wondering about the sizes listed (I haven't bought it yet). Are the sizes listed the finished sizes? For example, she says her Medium = 36-40" bust. So is it meant to be made for a gal with a 36-40" bust, or is the finished size somewhere around 36-40" big? Hmmm.

Hmmm, good question.  I assumed she meant for person of that size.  I wish there were more measurements posted in the pattern.  But oh well.
I didn't worry to much about it because I have found that when I make top down raglans that if the raglan length is right for me the chest width will be just right.  Raglans are pretty easy to adjust.
I haven't decided about the sleeves yet, but I am almost ready to start them.  I think I will do them at the same  time and try it on to see how I like the length...
I know 3/4 sleeves are a bit unpractical, but I tend to roll up my sleeves to keep my cuffs clean any way.  I am a teacher and I always get chalk on my sleeves if I don't roll them up! 
But yesterday I was wearing a cardigan with really long sleeves and I really liked how it looked.  Hmm what to do?
