Easy Adult Sweater

In my continuing efforts to de-stash my wool collection, I've been working on the Easy Adult Sweater by Lionbrand. 

I'm using about 6 balls of mint green DK wool I found in my Grans stash when we were clearing out her house (thanks Gran!). The pattern is fairly simple, a little more complicated for me, since I'm just getting used to following patterns.

I cast on about 2 weeks ago and here's where I am so far:

I'm following the pattern to fit Large, since I'm a big lass, and I didn't quite anticipate the amount of stitches it would require!! 251 stitches on my 4.5mm needles!! Phew, it's a LOT of knitting and it feels like it takes a day to knit just one row.  The instructions do say to switch to circular needles (which I don't have) but I'm coping not bad on the straight ones.

I'm beginning to see it take shape now.  What I like about it, is that it is knit in one piece.  And I like the edging.  Simple, but it breaks it up. 

I'm currently working on the sleeves.  Hopefully it will turn out alright, and I'll try remember to post photo updates!
