This was a quick knit in doubled Ariosa, but alas not quick enough. Blogged here http://classiceliteyarns.blogspot.com/2011/01/vogue-knitt....
I flew through this. I know this is an exceptionally unpopular view, but I almost prefer sweaters knit in pieces and seamed. This was like carrying around a queen bedspread in my bag! The shaping is this sweater is beautiful and brilliant, being almost completely contained in the leaf motif. I used Kitchener stitch to join the armpits.
