I'm almost as far as you are, lambsear.  Well, you're probably much farther now, but anyway...
I'm also motivated by the knowledge that this thing is only 2 pieces---no sleeves!  And I also LOVE the color of yours.  Love.  Really really.

I just ordered my yarn for this, and I'm so excited! I have the Razor cami lined up next, but after that, it's onto the Prairie Tunic! I've never substituted on an actiual sweater pattern before, so I hope I chose right! I picked Rowan 4 ply cotton, (same gauge, 28sts per 4") in Aegean, and I can't wait for it to show up!  Grin

Next up: sewing and wearing!

Beautiful color, lambsear!  I can't wait to see it finished.  I'm plodding along on mine; hopefully it'll be done soon.

Getting there...

A few hours at knitting club tonight should get me kinda close to the end...depending on the ratio of knitting to eating/drinking/chatting, of course!

I really like this one! Usually knit things look really bulky and/or dull to me, but this seems to have a rather slim fit, and looks really nice too. Perhaps it should go on my "to do" list. I can't wait to see more pictures!

Finished.  I'll take it for a test drive this weekend to see how much I like it.


Sorry the pics are a little blurry.

Hey guys!  Saw that you had a KAL going along here, and decided to join in...and here's my finished product!:

I ended up using this awful (but pretty colored) Red Heart (believe me, I don't often go there) yarn, called Luster Sheen, but just because it was the right weight and was only $5 a skein.  I paid for my cheapness, though, since the blocking didn't calm down the curling at the bottom as much as I think it would've in a natural fiber.  (and of course, adding ribbing like lots of people did on here would've worked wonders as well)  Also - I knitted the back in a small size, and when I got it done and measured I decided that I maybe should make the medium for the front.  It doesn't look bad and the side seams are pretty much where they should be, but I think a small for both sides would've been best.  Oh well - it was fun making it and I've already worn it a couple of times!

i started this about 2 weeks ago...and i am about 7 inches into the back piece.  it is taking FOREVER!  i also have never done short rows before, so i'm a little intimidated.  i remember seeing an article about it in IK earlier i think... do i have to know anything about short rows, or do i just follow the directions?  i am using lion brand microspun Sad  to clean out the stash.  i used it on the razor cami and it turned out okay.
