The Knitting Goes On

We're sort of settling into a new routine in the Lucky Penny Headquarters.  One morning included oversleeping until 9:30 AM.  Because I have Piccolo, I'm usually up earlier to take her out, but I'm never fully functioning in the early morning unless it's somehow fiber or Lucky Penny event related.  I'm home in the evening mostly, so it means more home cooking for me and the Man.  Which is good.  The Man thinks that I need time off, but I get some grief from him about "sitting and watching t.v."  Knitting is an activity that's normally done sitting, but I've been known to knit from a reclined position as well.  I'm looking forward to the day that I can put my former employer completely behind me, which is proving to be difficult as I've found I'm still on the email distribution list, and they had made my personal phone number available to my work sites without my permission, and I'm still receiving calls.  More layers of how badly this whole thing was done.
Working on a custom piece, that's taking more time than I would like.  I also need to fully restock the retail inventory, since I have nothing.  Nothing.  All my merchandise is in shops or has been sold.  It's a good problem to have, but I still have another shop waiting for sweaters. 
The personal work includes finishing or changing sweaters.  The one above is the the process of having sleeves lengthened a bit.  I expect it will go to Colorado with me in two weeks.  The ticket is paid for and non-refundable, so I'm going.  It will be good.

Is there a pattern available for this beautiful green sweater?

The sweater is Ingenue from Wendy Bernard's brilliant book, Custom Knits.
