After many days, and almost 2in of knitting i have realised that my Thermal is a moebius strip. Thats what happens when you make the fatty-boombah size on 60cm circs (you cant see the twistedness).

Its sitting there, glaring at me, daring me to frog it....

Awww..Sorry to hear that...I would be so mad  Embarrassed

I have to do about 12 more rows and then I can separate for the front and back. This will sound silly but I'm actually a little sad about it. For days now, it's been the same thing...no looking at the pattern, no keeping track of a chart. Just measuring here and there. but before long, I'll have to drag that pattern out. Mark decreases, etc...

BUT at the same time, oh so excited to almost be at that point. It's starting to warm up slightly here in Southern Va. and I want to wear this at least one before Spring  Smiley

I'm soooo excited.  I just ordered elann's Baby Peruvian Cashmere in heather rose for this!   I have never ordered from elann but I have a feeling this yarn is going to be wonderful.  I had to buy 17 balls of it because it comes in 109 yards, and that feels like an insane amount! $58 dollars is not bad though, for what I think will be my favorite sweater ever.  Smiley

Ok, so I just got my yarn in today and can't wait to start!!!  Before I start though, I'm just wondering ..... are most people going down a bust size when they make this?  I'm a 36' and am tempted to go down to a 34", but don't want it to end up being too small after all that work!!  It does look like it will stretch quite a bit though....

what you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful....

I am usually about a 36 and decided to make the 34...it is definitely huggin the curves, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it will block out significantly larger.  It is super stretchy!
