So, I have ordered the yarn for Isla from Rowan's A Season's Tale.
It's knit in fingering weight at 28 stitches to 4 inches. This is by far the smallest gauge I have ever attempted to knit a whole sweater in. I will probably knit the 38 inch size, so it's going to be a slog.

BUT--I have also never knit a sweater that I love to death, that flatters me, and that I wear all the time. I've achieved 2 out of 3, but never the full hat-trick of knitting joy.

Am I mental?
Please tell me your (hopefully) inspiring tales of small-gauge satisfaction.

BTW--RYC Cashsoft 4 ply is on sale at elann right now... Just sayin'
