What are you most proud of? I am glad that I took this class. I have made numerous sweaters and for some reason I could not get the gauge down. I would make an entire sweater come to find out that it would not look or fit right. It's extrememly frustrating. The thing I am most proud of is that this bolero fits and I learned ways to adjust certain measurements thorughout the process of this project in order to make this fit right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I think one thing that I could have done differently was add more stitices to the front. If you have a larger bust definitly consider that when your knitting this. Altough, I know I still have to knit the button band, I keep thinking that it will be a little tight. I dislike it when you have a buttoned shirt or sweater and the buttons look like they might pop and hit someone in the eye. :P

I'd like to know what yarn you used. So many yarns change colors so quickly that you end up with stripes that don't line up in the front. Yours do. What kind of yarn did you use to get those nice lined-up stripes?

I used wisdom poems sock yarn. The color I used for this sweater was pumpkin patch, but there are many of other colors too. They will all change like this yarn.
