What are you most proud of? This sweater is comfortable to wear and moves with my very three dimensional, middle-aged figure. I still have to flip the sleeves under and do a double line of hand over-sewing detail work, but I couldn't wait to post the (almost) finished project.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Amy's class. If you can't do that, then look at the measurement schematic provided with the pattern which is very good, and take every one of your own measurements so you can lengthen and shorten/widen and slenderize where you need. The pattern itself was well-written. I didn't find any major errors. I chose to do three rows of garter stitch at the front and back bottoms edges because I don't like the roll of stockinette. I also used a lacy/stretchy bind off around the collar. Finally, I decided I DID like the stockinette roll when it came to the ties; I made them extra long so I could make a big bow with long ends in the back - a more vertical visual, I think.
