Slowly but Shirley

I'm such a cheeseball. Sorry kids.

Well, I've been knitting the Reflection Aran pullover for my brother. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but he got a mini sweater instead. So I'm still chugging along on the sweater. In fact, just this evening I finished the second sleeve. Here is where I was a couple of days ago (sorry, it's not my best photographic moment, but the light here is kinda iffy):

Reflection Aran Sweater progress

Here you can see the back and one and three quarters of a sleeve. I'm knitting it in Knit Picks Swish Superwash in the color way Deep Ocean on size fours. Yup, that's right folks. Size FOURs. I guess I knit my cables really loosely. ANYWAY. You'll notice if you click on that link that the color way is so popular that they won't have any to sell until 1/19/07. This would be great...if I weren't already running out of yarn for the sweater. I've only got about four and a half skeins left, which is NO good since the back is a lot less intricate and took me about five skeins in and of itself. I'm thinking I will need to reorder, and while I decided that I don't care anymore about the dye lots matching (because he's a guy, he won't know!), it still means that I need to actually procure more of this yarn.

Sigh. The things I do for my brother. Oh, and the yarn is making three of my fingers on my right hand turn blue. I just hope the sweater doesn't make him look like Grover when it's done with him.

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has made the Ram's horn Sweater in petite. I am working on the back right now and I am having some problems with the decreases for the arm holes. I have seen the errata for the side and collar could there be more?
Thanks for the help!

Dear Shirley,

Did you ever finish the blue Reflection Aran Pullover by Norah Gaughan? I have finished the back panel and the sleeves, but have found several errors in the pattern in the front panel. It makes the going very slow and tedious as I attempt to make corrections. Do you have the corrections or know where I can find the corrections?

Thank you SOOO much,
