I just cast-on this project last night! I am using it to stash-bust too, I have a pretty green cotton yarn I am using, so i am hoping I have enough to finish!
How long is this taking everyone to do? I have like 3-4 inches done, and am trying to see if I can get this done to wear on St Patrick's Day.

I've been knitting this for probably half a week now. It's taking me forever because as I plan on making long sleeves using magic loop, I have knitting it continental (I'm actually a combined knitter and combined doesn't work with circular knitting). It's my first time knitting continental flat, and asides from taking ages, my knits and purls have different tensions. I kept going, hoping my tension would even out, but it didn't. Tongue oh well. I've just joined the body, so hopefully things should go faster now. Those raglan increases were so time consuming...

Here's a question for you or anyone else who might know:

Is there a way to get rid of the sharp angle at the 2 neck center fronts? There must be a way to curve that edge.
It bothers me to have that sharp point up by my neck.

Hi pmack17, have you tried short row shaping? It would take care of that. Here are a couple of links for you to check out:

Knitty.com Article- Short row shaping A really good "how to" with diagrams!

Knitting Help- Advanced Techniques Scroll down to video "Short Row with Wrap"

Hope that helps!

Short rows! Wow! What a great idea. I know how to do them. How would I apply it to this situation? Just shorten each row in the garter stitch neckband?

I finally finshed mine! The sleeves were way too small, so I ended up doing them like three times over to get them the right size. I was very happy with the outcome though. I used just over one skein of Patons Paridisio. It is a beautiful green that I am going to wear tomorrow for St Patrick's Day! I really love this pattern though, it was a great one to use to with my stash since I am on a major yarn diet.

Can't wait to see everyone else's!

I'm thinking about making a second boobholder and trying to tackle that pointy-edge question that pmack17 had.  maybe cast on fewer stitches in the beginning and do increases at the ends of each row until I hit the stockinette part, so that there's a slanting edge instead of such a point?  I'll have to experiment.
Here's my first boobholder mod below.  I didn't do the sleeve increases, and after I reached my button row (I used a crochet chain loop instead of a buttonhole) I started doing decreases instead of increases.  It was a stashbuster, this odd camo yarn -- I think I bought it on clearance forever ago.

Cute, aijay. What a coincidence! I'm wearing mine today! Your idea for the neck edge sounds good. Please report back and let us know the results.

I really like yours aijay!

I am so close to finished- but I don't have US 8 (5.0mm) DPN's or small enough circs so I can't finish the sleeves yet. I even sewed on the button!  Smiley

I tried to do it with straights but it stretched the seam too much, and looked scary!  Shocked I thought it was going to break the yarn!

So I have to go get some DPN's today.  Undecided I am going to the cheapest place I know to get them cuz i am soooo poor right now!
