I am currently knitting this sweater having chanced upon it in KNITS after looking all over for a FairIsle Pattern

It is working up lovely- have the body and one sleeve worked to the yoke. One more sleeve and then I knit the entire yoke together.  Unortunately it will wait til Feb now as I am traveling in a fe days and I WIL NOT work DPN in a plane. I am always dropping the 5th needle when I work offthe stitches and free the next one up.  Can you imagine diving for a DPN in a plane??

Thanks for the pattern...WIll post pix when I am done in the early spring I HOPE.
