This sweater is wonderful! Maybe I'll ask for yarn for this for my birthday instead of more sock yarn Wink

I'm so glad I found this KAL!  I did a search for "thermal" a few days ago and nothing came up...but here it was all along.

I'm really tempted to join in -- which is crazy because I already have so many projects (and more to the point, so much stash, none of which would work for this).  But I love this sweater.  Possibly because it hasn't been above 20 degrees F for about a month here and I'm ALL about the layers lately.  Also crazy because of that insane gauge.  No more small-gauge projects, I keep telling myself!

Ok, so much for the scolding.  I'll probably join in.  But if I do, I know I'll get bored or distracted several times, so don't expect it to be done till next winter...

So, gloss in black or burgundy?  Has anyone seen the burgundy in person yet?  Is it more reddish or more purplish?

I'm going to do my swatch tonight (I hate the process, but this time it's a must!)

I'm using the gloss in Burgandy. It is sooo soft. I think it has a slight tint of brown with the red, not really purple. It's just ever so slightly darker than what you see on the website. When I opened the package I thought, "That's a true burgandy." (Of course, my opinion might not mean much, hehe)

I just received my gloss today and hope to swatch tonight.  It is so soft and the woodland sage is beautiful!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will get gauge on the first try!

Holy cow...I knew I wasn't going to get gauge but geesh! I started with US 1's, then 2, 3, and now moving to size 4. But I'm guessing the 4 isn't going to cut it either. Hopefully, I can stop at 5.  Lately, I've been having to go up one or two needles sizes, but this is nuts.

I hate swatching...but glad I am. *sigh*

I agree about the Burgandy. A warning about the Serengeti, though, to anyone who is thinking of using it... it is much darker than on my monitor, at least. It is closer to a camel than a cream color.

ibmomof2 - which yarn are you using? Is going up that many needle sizes leaving you with a holey weave?

I'm using the knitpicks gloss. The good news is I got guage on US 4. Stitch and row...I never get row gauge Smiley  It does seem ever so slightly loose, but I think that's in part because of the stitch pattern. Stretchy, you know?
