You did an awesome job on this sweater!! Wow! How do you like working with the Peruvian Highland wool--I was thinking of using it for the solid portion of Sandy from Big Girl Knits.

Gorgeous! Did you use the pattern as written, or did you amplify it? If so, how did you know where to put the armholes? In any event, you did a beautiful job.

That came out simply gorgeous!! I love the colors - the edging really looks terrific, too. Awesome!

That turned out fabulous! I like the cuff, that is ribbing, isn't it?

Your sweater came out gorgeous, Colette. The more I look at it the more I just love the multi shaded sleeves too. Nice choice of colors. I see you hadn't decided on a closer. Are you not going to use any? I used a large wood button on my granddaughter's, with a loop as a button hole. Don't you just love the loopi border? It gives the sweater a nice finishing doesn't it. Once again, NICE job. It really looks great on you!!

Beautiful! Thanks for the many shots- it's terrific! Did you alter your pattern at all, or did you knit it to the pattern? Thanks for sharing.... -Jessica

Yours looks a lot better than mine. I feel like I'm wearing a target. You can see mine at http://www.picturetrail.com/gunhild
