I gave translating it a shot. You can see what I came up with on my blog. I couldn't interpret some stuff and I didn't reword everything so it doesn't make perfect sense. Jess's much better.
I ordered Merino Style from Knitpicks - 12 skeins for the 2nd size in harvest. I hope I like the color and got enough of it.
I wasn't planning on starting this sweater so soon but working on the pattern has me itching to cast on. I can't wait to get started.
