Rich Frond Its coming along!! Honestly, I can't believe how easy this pattern is. After doing two chart repeats I put the magazine away. I've had to change it some. Its only 10 inches from pit to waist! I'm at least 14in. and I hate the little cap sleeves so I decided to knit it straight (drop shoulder) and add regular shortish sleeves. About 6 in long. Covers up the flappy underarms. LOL. Don't want a beautiful sweater showing off your worst features!! Otherwise..its coming along wonderfully.
