You'll post pictures when you finish, right?
I haven't had pudding in ages, but now I want some... :thinking:

It's more than pudding that he makes....much thicker and so chocolately....mmmmmm....

Anyways, yes of course I will post pictures once finished. I might post a "finished and off the needles" pic tonight, and will get one up of me wearing it once the ends are woven and it is blocked.

YAAAAY!
I'm so excited! I might not go to bed until you do! Which is also a good thing, because it give me reason to stay up and work on my sweater!
I always liked to save some of the powdery stuff from jello pudding to mix in after it had set. It sounds totally gross, but it makes it thicker!

KellyK...I'm making the same sweater you are and I'm wondering about something. I still have about 10 rows to go on the top part (yoke?) and the needles are nearly filled with stitches already! 10 rows equals about 40 more increases! Were your needles jammed with stitches before you separated the sleeve parts? I am making a small so I can't imagine any more stitches on the larger sizes since the needle size was the same!

It's done!! Well, done except for weaving in and blocking. The little blob of yarn to the left is what's left of my yarn. I'd estimate about 20ft only . If I had more yarn, I'd have made it a smidge longer but hopefully I can lengthen it a touch with blocking. It's cotton too, and that tends to stretch a bit, right?

So anyways, this is the picture I have for now and hopefully tomorrow or the next day I can get a pic of me modelling it. It is a wonderful, easy pattern, I'd recommend it to anyone!

That's so pretty! If I was 20 lbs thinner I might make one of them for me.
