my yarn has arrived!

Despite the prediction that it will be off gauge, I went ahead and got the Knit Picks Andean Treasure. Main color Sunset, edging Woods. It predicts 6st=1", so I'm going to swatch it with size 3 needles and see where it gets me (hopefully as high as 26 per 4 inches?). I'm generally a pretty tight knitter, I think. I'm so excited; I really love the structure of this sweater. I'm also not afraid of math, so I'm fine with doing some modifications to the pattern.

I'm thinking about not doing the flap, however, and having a simple boatneck. I also like MeBeth's ideas for the neckline.
