What are you most proud of? The fit. My math skills aren't my strong suit, but Stephanie Japel makes it doable.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the video a couple of times and then go for it. Knitting can require a leap of faith, but once you get going it all makes sense.

Good advice about learning the math! The sweater fits so well, and looks very stylish. Congratulations!

Lovely sweater. I love the stripes in this.

Because I did not want the stripes to be noticeably in matched, I decided to reverse the direction of the yarn each time I started a new ball. So if the previous ball was brown-tan-blue, then the next ball I joined was blue-tan-brown and so forth. I liked the effect.

That should say "noticeably unmatched".
