Roxanne,

Thanks so much for sharing this information. I know some folks are a little funny about munny.

Wow, I expected the cost to be much more! If I saw your sweater at the mall, I'd be prepared to pay more than $45 for it!!!

Great info, thanks again...now I can actually consider doing this project. Very affordable!!!

Hi Amy,

All the stripes were my addition....the one at the bottom of the sleeve, the one at the elbow and the one in the collar. The pattern calls for solid body and solid sleeves. I also added a small stripe at the back bottom too...ended up my front panels were a little bit longer than my back panel so I had to pick up stitches and add some at the bottom to make it long enough to match the front. I sure as heck wasn't going to frog the entire back panel....I had already done it twice because the first try ended up feeling too "small".

Oh, and Amy, I used your little video on the felted join (spit splice) to join all my yarn together in my sweater...sure made it easier...not so many ends to weave in and it worked like a charm! Even used it for my colour changes...hardly noticeable too! So thank you so much!!

Roxanne.

Oh my gosh, that is not bad at all for what you spent and what you got out of it. I thought I might try it, but then when you talked about felt.... my mind shut down. :? Yikes! Maybe when I am a little more advanced. I am going to go buy that pattern though. Thanks for the info!!
