I'm making a good progress on mine and I love how it's coming out. I did make a lot of changes though, mostly because of a different yarn, gauge, shaping. But the biggest change is in the front, which I'm turning into a v-neck. See more here: http://www.uniquedizigns.com/search/label/Seaglass%20Shell

Why no pictures of the front!!  This makes no sense.

I love this design, but won't buy the yarn until I can see the front.

Is there a problem with the front??????
