Ah, the February Lady...I cast on for this over a year ago. Then I stopped because the color I was using was truly nauseating. Don't knit a sweater that you know you will never wear. Even if, like me, you may have two cones of "apple green" cotton yarn--that actually looked nice and apple-y at the Peaches and Cream website but in real life is more acid-electric-neon green. Save those 1600 yards of cotton for dishcloths.
