The sweater is finished! I got the circular needles and did the collar Friday afternoon/evening. I also had to baste the sleeve cuffs in place to keep them from falling. The sweater is cozy, warm, and heavy! Good thing I decided to shorten the coat to a hip-length sweater, or it'd weigh a ton in this yarn! I used Lion Brand Kool Wool (50% merino, 50% acrylic) in Fuchsia. I understand they have recently discontinued this yarn, once remaining supplies are sold it will be gone forever! :(
Anyway, I am now back to my fingerless gloves and mittens for my knit-alongs. I am also trying to work out a cap pattern in a super-bulky weight yarn... More about that later!
