I'm talking about the taupe sweater with the ribbon woven in close to the neckline....anyone else thinking of taking on this project? It's definitely going to be my most advanced project to date.

If you have a link you can modify your post and add it. It will help people decide. :wink:

Sorry, I don't think it's on their website....and I don't have access to a scanner today.

Darn. I have the magazine out in my car, but I don't have access to a scanner...and I don't know off the top of my head which one you mean, either. Ok, so I'm no help, sorry! :oops:

I have the mag with me today, so I'll see if I can get my evil little hands on a scanner. I do have to say that I'm done knitting the main part of the front, and am on to a sleeve now! Once I'm done with one sleeve, I'll start knitting the main back part (which is same as front).

I would've been done with both back and front, but I had to unravel everything after row #45 because I messed up so bad, I couldn't fix it. :wall: However, I also used that opportunity to change the yarn to a thicker one, since with the thinner one I was using, the sweater would be too see-through to wear without a slip or cami underneath, and I don't like to do that.

I finished the sweater last week....it's a tad big, but still wearable. I've had a few people ask me where I bought it ( :teehee: ). I wore it to visit my elderly neighbor today and she flipped...she's done a lot of nice things for me, so maybe I'll knit one for her. She loved the yarn, too, which is good, because I had bought TONS of it on sale, and definitely have enough to knit another sweater.
