I like the skier's tracks pattern on the funnel neck. And a neck that will protect against the wind, but not feel tight, with room for a cowl or something if necessary - that also appeals to me.

I love how it's looking so far! Although I'm not that advanced of a knitter to construct a sweater like that, I'll definitely be lurking here to see how yours is going.

Love the skier tracks - what an awesome way to knit a little tribute for the Olympics coming to town!

I really like your design too with the skier's tracks. And I really like the natural coloured wool you selected. Am looking through my stash for some suitable, although I suspect a trip to the yarn store might be in order.

Oops ... this sweater idea sort of spun around in my head while I was sleeping. I didn't have enough yarn in the right color/amount/weight in my stash, and ordering would take time. But I did have a coupon for 20% off a yarn purchase in a LYS, that I have been saving up for a multi skein project. I didn't know if I would manage to get to the store today, I thought it closed at 14.00. But I decided to try, since I wasn't sure about the opening hours. So I went - by bike, in the snow, no less! Turns out it does close at two, but the owner still had work to do there, and then she keeps the store open until she's finished. To cut a long story short: I bought yarn!

I'll get started knitting a swatch, then we'll see what happens - I might follow you closely, I might end up making my own tracks and going off in some other direction, simply looking to you for inspiration. I'm definitely in favor of waist shaping, partly since I'm not tall, partly since my waist is one of my good points :-)

Sounds like a wonderful project! I have some aran weight in denim that just might get cast on this weekend. It's been so long since I've knit a sweater, this seems like the perfect time and project.

I'm really enjoying following your ideas. I'm not doing a sweater now, but for sure when I'm ready to take the time, I'll look back at your posts.

The funnel neck on its own would make a great cowl. Nifty!

that would make a beautiful neckwarmer
and of course a beautiful sweater

Oh no, I am already in love with this sweater! I think I might really join. I’ll see if I won’t be able to get some affordable yarn in a creamy white today, get the Durrow sweater off the needles as soon as possible and join in the fun.

Yarn ... check
Swatch ... check
Cast on ... check (love tubular cast on)
Head downhill ... 2.5" so far

Just ordered some yarn and posted about it on my blog...
