What are you most proud of? I must say, I'm quite proud that I managed to trick with this pattern and change it a bit. The pattern says "knit in the round with steeks and then clip in the front, clip and make the armholes, clip away the stuff and make a neck opening. Too much clipping, I think! I got frightened by all this clipping and knitted back and forth, rather shaping the armholes and the neck. It may be a bit awkward in the beginning, but soon becomes a rhythm and no big deal. I also picked up the stitches from the shoulders and knitted the sleeve from there. (The original pattern suggested that the sleeves were to be made separately, from the cuff and up, and then to be sewn to the shoulder.) So I adjusted the squares in the pattern, did the increases - and now I'm quite happy with the result. The only seams are to be found on the shouldres when I knitted the front and the back together before picking up the stitches around the armhole. I like "seamlessness". It makes the whole thing more... flexible, I'd say...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to experiment. The project may be a bit demanding, but it's fun! And one more thing: trap the long floats!
