i thought about using cable cast on, but i would still be casting on at this moment instead of working the miles of 1x1 ribbing.....

Hey, for those of you who had to move up a couple of needle sizes, at another knit along for this sweater, on blogger, there is a note from the designer. Here's the link:

I just looked at the knitalong blog, and it seemed that the gloss widens considerably when washed. I'm a genius, and nowhere near my swatch, and am not really feeling the urge to rip, as I have made it a whopping 3 inches into the sweater... Does anyone know if this is indeed the case?

the gloss stretches alot, at least for me, i'm knitting the size up, on 2.75mm needles, i did the math and my ribbing should have been my perfect hip size, but i just tried it on and its a little loose, which is fine with me because i dont want it too tight, but i definitely think that the pattern is right when it says to go down a size if you are between and you want a close fit

I am almost positive that its the same yarn, so I'm sure that it will work.  I wish that I would have seen that myself before I started!
