Found someone who is making good progress with this sweater

Check out Becky's progress on the sweater. I had invited her to join the KAL. Hopefully she will. Her speedy progress could rub off on us.

Meanwhile, I had not touched my sweater much since my last update. =P

Presenting my cream Phildar sweater


Here are some progress shots of my Phildar:

The back is almost half done. I like how it's looking so far. I used tubular cast on for the 2/2rib. So how are you gals progressing on this sweater?

Edit to add:
Instructions for Tubular Cast On can be found here and for tubular cast off here. You can also find them in Vogue Knitting Reference Book.

Progress Report

Hi All,

Just wanted to say that I finally broke down and got the Karabella Aurora 8 on sale at Knit Happens. Did a swatch for the sweater last night and I just started the ribbing. Since that is nothing exciting, I did not post any pics. Will post one when I am further along.

So how is everyone coming along? I have completed the translation for the back and front if anyone is interested though I think you gals are further along than I am so I am sure you already completed the translation!

By the way, I saw someone posted a question asking for the name of the sweater. Well, there is no name for this sweater as they are identified by a number. This one is 436-T5-160. Hope that helps.
