Cranberry- this definatley has been said to be knit small, but i just looked at the finished products on people and picked the person with a body type as close to mine and you can tell which size they made (if they dont say) by the space between the front cables.  Im a 36" bust and im making the 36", but i want it really fitted (i also lengthend mine by 2") and i am using lion brand woolease which seems to expand, haha.  I guess it depends on your yarn characteristics and how tight you want it?

Thanks for the feedback. I'm a 34, about a US size 6/8 - and I think this would be a size 8.

I'm using Rowan all seasons cotton (machine washable, and it doesn't 'sag' in the way that cotton does). I can't have tweed against my skin, and I don't know how 'soft' the Casade yarns are.

Thanks again.  Smiley

Okay- so my sleeves are finito- except for seaming, which I hate
I have about 1" on the ribbing along the front opening done, now I need to think about how I will do the buttonholes.  Then seaming  & attaching sleeves and weaving in any loose ends.  Should have finished pic up soon, if I don't get too lazy. (Sorry I haven't taken any progress ones, lazy again)

The superwash is also 220 yards (though in ball form it looks smaller than a hank... heheh) and it feels wonderful--very soft and also incredibly smooth... this is my first time making anything with Cascade 220 superwash but from the feel of what I've knitted so far I highly recommend it!

I'm about to cast on, finally!  It's been months of waiting to finish baby clothes for my many friends that gave birth this summer.  Now something for me, yeah! This is my first sweater, so I'm a little nervous but I've done all the skills before, just not on such a large scale.  Last night I worked my swatch.  I'm using peace fleece, which I have a harder time getting gauge with...so I'm hoping to really get it right this time!  Kind of itchy yarn but I can't resist the colors and I think this will be a going out to the park, woods, etc with the kids kind of sweater for me.

I'm finally posting pictures of mine.  And, fun with my camera's timer!



Please excuse my CRAZY eyes.  I have no idea what's going on there...



As a recap, I used knitpicks swish superwash in bright red.  I think I made the small?  I don't remember.  I didn't do buttons, but I'm thinking about adding some sort of cloak-ish closure.
I really love this sweater and am ever so glad it's fall-ish enough to wear again.

That red is hot!  I really like the way it turned out.  I am going to have to pull mine out and start working on it again.  I got sidetracked, but it is such a great pattern.  It is really worth finishing.
