What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of a top down sweater. Use circular needles and make sure the first row isn't twisted before joining the ends. As you add increase rows, switch to a needle with a longer cord. The Gemmell's instructions are some of the clearest and easiest to follow on top down knitting, so I recommend getting their book.

To change to another color yarn; use a "Russian Join"! YouTube has many videos on how to do this SIMPLE, SECURE "knot". It just needs a wide-eyed needle.
