After following this thread for awhile I'm finally jumping in. This will be my first sweater, and I'm grateful to use up some Simply Soft since i have a ton of it lying around... but then, I have a ton of yarn in general that I don't have a plan for.

Here is what I have so far.

ok, so the pattern calls for a size US8 24" circular, but i have US8 32" circular...will this make any difference?  should i go get a 24" or stick with the 32"?  i think i got the 32" because i didn't see any 24" circulars...i just don't want to get very far and have to undo it.

Do you have a 26'' circular? You need a circular needle from 24-26'' because you are working the body in the round, and 32'' is too large of circumfrence for the amount of stitches you probably will have.

Unless, of course, your sweater is going to be more than about 36 inches around, in which case you can probably get away with a 32" needle just fine.

I stretched all my stitches onto a 32" circular (because I bought that one, and the only other option was 16") It seems to be going ok, although they look a little loose. I think it'll be ok for the body bit, and the boatneck is ribbing which will hopefully pull it a bit tighter.

For a first go, I'm not too concerned.  Smiley

alright, to apparently the 24-26" circulars don't exist in houston...i've been to michael's, joanns, and walmart.  the smallest i could find was 29" and i'm going for it on that...it's my first sweater, hopefully all will go well.

p.s. that pink and grey one just makes me want to do this even more.  awesome job.

peps, I LOVE yours!  I was thinking about doing pink and gray except I don't know where my gray went...

I really want to make one but I don't have simply soft in my stash that's actually colors I like Tongue

...and I really shouldn't go out and buy any more...
