Comments: The pattern is very easy to knit. It was a nice portable project to take places where I didn't want to think much (can you say chatting while knitting?). It's a pattern that works well with textured yarns. I did make a change in the sleeves. I seamed for 10 inches (instead of to the markers) because it seemed to fit better that way.
