beautiful! I am not brave enough to try sweaters and I love to knit. I have only been brave enough to do afghans. Do you think an afghan knitter can do this one? Thanks

Yikes.

Still waiting on mine as well.... UGH! Amazon site says it could be here between Jan 27 and Feb 10!!! Geesh!

The bad thing for me is that I already have tons of stash and I NEED to use that before buying anymore!!!

Oh Happy Day!!! I did go into my stash and found 1150 yards of a coral, cotton/acrylic blend. Labeled "Campo" from Schoeller Esslinger and discontinued. It guages out as required using size 6!!!! I know, the pattern calls for more but I think with the adjustments planned, it should be enough! I can always make the sleeves 3/4 length, since that's what I usually wear anyway..... Pays to check your stash....I was fixing to spend another $40 on yarn again!

losnana,
Did you receive your yarn yet? That is the yarn/color I was looking at.
