Yes I did join the stitches then purled. So I should join the stitches then knit instead of purl? Did that stop yours from rolling? Thanks.

I'm late to this knitalong, but I started Green Gable last weekend. I'm using Rowan Calmer in the chiffon color, because I had some I recycled from an older project that I never wore.  Grin

This was my progress four days ago, just after splitting the sleeves from the body. Now I've made it down beyond the waist decreases and I've added some hip increases because my lower body needs the extra width. Tongue I have a few more inches to go, but I'm eager to have this done, especially after seeing everyone else's finished Green Gables!

I'm done!

I finished this yesterday and am wearing it to work today! I first cast off on Saturday night, but it was a little shorter than I prefer. So on Sunday I pulled out the cast off edge and added two inches to the length. I'm glad I did, I like it much better this way!

Modifications: I added three extra sets of rows C and D before separating the sleeves from the body because the pattern as written would have been too tight around my shoulders and arms. Then I also spaced the waist decreases out an inch apart (the pattern has them only two rows apart) and then added in three rounds of hip increases because my hips are several inches wider than my waist and need the extra space. I also added two inches to the length of the body.

I'm late to the start, too, it looks like, but I've been admiring this sweater all through my first year of grad school, and I finally have that rarest of all commodities in a grad student's life -- free time!  And I've never done an actually sweater before (scarves, socks, hats, etc.) and this one looked inspiring and fulfilling -- and mercifully quick.  So I bought the pattern, and 5(!) skeins of Reynold's Cabana (65% cotton, 35% -- shudder -- acrylic) in a deep red (color 832) because my LYS had no cotton fleece or that delicious green of green gables fame.  It's a little stiff, so far, but we'll see how it goes.  But I'm excited, halfway through the little open-work bit, and I have a long car ride ahead of me this weekend. 

And -- brilliant work, everyone.  You've all inspired me!

Just purchased the pattern and Knitpick's Shine Worsted in Crocus, a gorgeous pink/purple color.

Joining late too, but glad to see everyone's finished sweater, they all look fab!

So, I've finished my GG in that red Reynold's Cabana yarn I got -- and I was right.  It was a little too thick and stiff for a short-sleeved summer sweater (of course, my camera is broken and I can't share).  So I ordered up some Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in the sage color, and I'm starting over.  If I have time in the future (who am I kidding) maybe I'll lengthen the sleeves on the red one and make a more wintry version.

Also -- I don't know if it was mentioned here -- on the Zephystyle website, http://www.zephyrstyle.com/board/board_topic/3278548/159707.htm, they suggest using a backwards-loop cast-on to loosen up the neckline -- mine originally was very tight and high.
