So far my ASJ is my most favorite sweater ever knit. I did mine without buttons, and close it with a shawl pin, so I can adjust the warmth factor by how closed up the neck is. I also added a bit of a stand-up collar because the neck was too wide for my liking. I added cuffs at the wrists by doing K2tog over and over, then knitting straight for an inch - lets me push up my sleeves if I want. I'd post a picture but I don't own a digital camera.

You can do it! You can go wild with colors and it will all magically work. Use the longest circular needle you can find, and rubber stoppers when you lay the work aside. Good luck--mine never fails to get compliments, and all I did was use up scraps (Bartlett's and Candide, mostly) from knitting my daughters' sweaters.
