This is going to be a well documented sweater:)

LOL:) But man, I made a lot of progress last night! A few things: (1) I'm doing stripes to make my way through stash rather than buying a sh*tload of new yarn, (2) I'm slipping the first stitch of every row - because it'll be easier to pick up stitches for the button band and it will look nicer on the side where we won't have a button band (did not realize that part because it's not in the picture and Karen F pointed that out to me yesterday (DOH!!!); and (3) whenever possible USE CIRCULAR NEEDLES (ahhhh that's better:)).
New pics:

More variations of pink on their way. It's a fun pattern:) even if I have messed with its head....
PS - Stitch count is now down to 352 - gauge measurement was a bit off the other night/with straight needles. (when have i ever been straight?)
PPS - yarns are either linen (green) or cotton (pinks/neutral). Am hoping the linen part looks better after washing.
Have a nice day,
Joan a/k/a FSK

Hi Joan:

Looking good! I like the colour selection (even though I'm not partial to light pink, it goes well with your other colours!).

The linen should look much better after washing, in my experience.

Your blog is also quite interesting. What sort of law do you practice?

I love the look of those colors together! It reminds me of ice cream in the summertime.

You're not kidding - it's been tough staying away from the ice cream while knitting this - especially the three-in-one combo, LOL:)!
