Today I finished the right side as well.  I am going to start the left side panel tomorrow and hopefully finish it  before i go to my Monday Night Knit group.  What is actually left is the button band and collar.  I am also interested in making after thought pockets by mimicking the pattern of one of the panels.  I will keep you apprised of the progress as I have other things to do and in the works.  Thanks for stopping by!
