Frogged, but back on track

Hi all, Thanks for your comments. I decided to rip it all out and start over, since I was just on the back and I would prefer a slouchy, jacket-fit sweater to a just-fitting sweater for this knit anyway. So I took a photo yesterday afternoon and here it is. Tienne, I saw your gorgeous CPHs and had to ask if you made modifications other than the toggles? Did you lengthen them at all? I haven't checked the schematics but I am tall and want to make sure it will be long enough. Thanks, Jen

I modified the length on mine. It was really easy and it doesn't make the sweater look weird. I just wanted it to cover the rear end of the person I made it for

Sorry, I haven't gotten back to you sooner - we don't have power at home due to a storm. So I'm at work now - I made all the CPHs longer than the pattern calls for, the toggles are different and I picked up more stitches on the front ribbing than the pattern calls for. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Okay, I just want to say I love the yarn you chose! What is it and what color??

The yarn is Cestari from Chester Farms and it's Blackberry 2-ply.
