Those are absolutely beautiful...and they look like a LOT of work!!! Gosh, I didn't even know pockets like that were POSSIBLE in knitting. (guess it depends a lot on who's doing the knitting lol).

They're actually surprisingly easy! You use a provisional cast on and cast on the body stitches plus the pocket stitches. After some shaping you graft bottom and top. Sounds confusing but the pattern is pretty well written and lots of people have made them.

Nice stitches, Jan! They are lookin' great!

I've knit a few top-down raglan cardigans....but only one turned out right. I admire knitters who can get that row gauge spot on!

My flops had armpits that hung down so far past where they should have! Made the fit look sloppy. That's what I get for substituting yarn. Stitch gauge: spot on. Row gauge: a tragedy!

And my oh my, I LOVE YOUR GLEAMING, SHINY HARDWOOD FLOORS! Beautiful!

Thank you so much for posting your WIPs, I knew it wasn't so but somehow I couldn't get rid of the idea that you went from start to stunning FOs w/o the in between stages. These are great and will be just as lovely as everything else you do. Love those pockets! I have to hop over to ravelry to see more about them.
