This sweater is named Starbuck after the character from the new Battlestar Galactica TV series (she was a bit of an amazon). When I first started working on the pattern I was geekily consuming the show and I naively thought that I would be able to get the whole pattern done by the time I had finished the series. Little did i know that making a great fitting pattern takes a lot more work than 3 seasons of television can afford! Moving on to more shows to occupy me while I was knitting & re-knitting the samples, I moved on to Nip/Tuck, Deadwood, Ugly Betty ...
