It's finished! Here's the raw photo's of the maternity sweater I just knit as an Alchemy for a gal on Etsy. She sent the yarn, pattern, and measurements; I modified the pattern to fit her and knit the yarn and crocheted the edging.

Thanx Runz! I measure work in 'naptimes', about 1/2 of which I spend catching up email/listing/forums/shipping/etc. The other half I get to actually work! :) So....about 3-4 naptimes to knit the main body (it was done on a machine, but nearly every row had an increase or decrease, or I had to put in a new ball of yarn cause they were so small (120 yards!). The crochet I did by hand, and I'm not sure I had ever done triple before. It was fun, and the buyer is happy, which is what really counts!
