I'm working on Wicked right now.  I'm using Debbie Bliss merino aran, and my gauge is off a bit.  I'm planning to make the small and hoping it comes out like the extra small.  My math works out in my head, but it remains to be seen how it goes on the sweater!  Here's a picture of where I was yesterday... since then I've done lots more.  I really like this pattern!  I'm not sure about the pocket yet, although I'm leaning to yes, and I'm planning either 3/4 or long sleeves.

I'm making this in RYC Soft Lux in pale blue that I bought on ebay. My gauge is so far off it isn't funny (20st/24) but by doing a lot more increase rows at the top I think I've got around it.

I cast on for the small size but increased so there are 180st in the body section and I've knit about 3 inches of that. I think I'm going to have to change the shaping too but I'll probably copy those used in Salina from Rowan Vintage Style as I've just finished that and it fits well.

My main worry is that I'll run out of yarn but I have 10 balls with 137 yards/125m so I'm hoing that will be enough even at a dk-type gauge.

If any more experienced knitters can see anything insane in my assumptions above please please stop me now before it all goes horribly wrong. I'm not a super-fast knitter and I'm expecting to spend about 3 weeks on this so I'd rather frog now than at the end!

I'll be in as soon as I can.  I have a couple of other small projects and I need to find a yarn.  I also think I'll do long sleeves with a pocket.

This sweater looks so beautiful!

Do you think it's easy enough for a first sweater?

I can do cables no prob. and all that just never bothered with a sweater (the gauge scares me). Can't wait to see more progress.


I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

I have some Ry Cashsoft Aran I picked up for $2 a ball (woot!) I'm planning on using for this. Unfortunately I have two other top downs I really should do before I get to it... so count me sorta in for this. lol.

At the very least, I'm going to be haunting this thread to watch everyone's FO's... so far the finished ones just keep getting better and better looking!

I just bought this pattern!

I'm using it to bust my stash - I have a lot of wool ease, so I think I'll use it to make this - but I can tell already that I'll want another one in a nicer wool.

I'm going to cast on this weekend!

I've been dying to do this as well!
I've actually held off a while because I really, really want to use the recommended Artyarns, but every time I go to the yarn store, I spend $75 on OTHER things and can't bring myself to get the Artyarns in addition!
I think I'll jump in with a cheaper sub for now, and I can always do it in Artyarns later.

Chloe - I think this would be great for a first sweater.  It's really simple, and it's top down so there's no seaming.  And we can all help you along if you get stuck!

Mooncalf - the best way to tell is to put the sweater on waste yarn and try it on.  I always do that as soon as I've separated the sleeves.  As long as the sleeves fit ok and you like where the neck falls I would imagine your ideas are fine.
