Good job, Carrie. I like the thoroughness of your review. For a "self-taught" sewer (as you call yourself) I would consider you pretty sophiticated! judy

What a great looking sweater! I bought this pattern last weekend and I can't wait to try it out. I love that the pattern includes many variations for the collar.

This looks so nice! Did you use a special zipper?

Great review Carrie -- your top looks much better than mine. I think most of my problems (except the collar) were due to a knit that just wouldn't stop growing, so your experience encourages me to try the pattern again.
