I've been plugging away on this pullover since June. Oy vey!
It got set aside for so many projects. But I'm working on it in earnst now...mainly because the center charted panel is not something that can be sidelined for a time, then picked up with any amount of mojo.

This is the Back. My first piece done. The little threads that you see are 16-row repeat markers. The repeat is 32 rows tall...but I mark them off in 16 row increments. Helps keep track of where you are.

Here (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/leaving)are my Ravelry notes. I have FIVE WARNINGS in the notes...all about the pitfalls that may occur within the center charted panels. (learned the hard way...story of my life...) :wall:

This is the yarn, and the color it really is...a fuchsia-red...I call it CERISE.

Remarkable as usual. Can't wait to see the finished sweater. The intricate pattern is gorgeous and so is the color. Yummy.

So incredibly beautiful! perfect knitting, beautiful colour.

btw: why is the title of this post called "leaving"? I couldn't find a reference to it in anything you said.....but am very happy that you're not leaving this forum! (you aren't, are you?)

Just hazarding a guess here, Woodi, but maybe she called it "Leaving" because of the leaf designs--and maybe because she wanted to be finished with (ahem, "leave") at least part of this project behind.

But I'm sure she's got an even better explanation!
