Tema - you SHOULD make one of these!! It's so easy because there's no sewing or joining to do. You start at the neck and knit in the round ALL THE WAY DOWN to the bottom. Seriously I wish I could find more sweater patterns like this. I made it in a month.

The only problem I had with it, is that it's form-fitting - - so instead of doing the decreases after the bodice, I just left them out to create more of a boxy fit. This meant I didn't know when to do the increases at the hip so it was tight. But Jan gave me a link to a "stretchy bind off" video and now that I've redone it that way - it's stretchy on the bottom and fits perfectly. Phew!

It's this knitty pattern (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEss10/PATTemmaline.php).

In the end you picked the perfect spring color. It looks so much better even than the photo with the pattern. Good work and beautiful fit.
