I have some cotton I'm going to use for my next project and was wondering about the wearability of it -- now I know!  Great job!  Love the sweater (and it looks comfy too!).

Wow, that sweater looks great! Another one added to the list... I like your color choice too, so summery.

That's cool!

Blue Alvarez patterns are always so great, aren't they?

Has anyone else made this?  I started, I'm almost done the the arm increases...  I'm a little concerned with a couple of things...

1. Sizing! - Ok, I've only made 3 complete sweaters that fit and I'm not all that familiar with sizing, but I'm making the XXS!!!!  I've never worn that in my life!  I hate pattern sizing!

2.  I'm having so problems (or anticipating them) with the pattern.  Once I get below the arms and join for the body they say to get rid of all markers except the one marking the beginning of the round.  Am I only supposed to do the decreases on one side?  Is there a mistake?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
