What are you most proud of? The biggest challenge for me was the seaming and the finishing. I made very few modifications but I did change the bind-off for the neckline. I worked an extra row in the contrast color before doing a sewn bind-off. WIth the extra set up row you end up with an edging that very nicely mimics a 2-color long tail cast on and is elastic enough to go over the head without discomfort.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Swatch the mosaic knitting first to get a hang of it. Once you try this new color technique you'll be addicted but you'll want to get a hang of it before trying it on your lovely pullover.
