this is my first top down sweater--it's from Knitting Pure and Simple. the yarn is "ella rae classic heather" in a nice lilac/purple (much better than my camera phone shows) i liked top down because the shaping/sizing worked well and you don't have to sew anything (badly) together. I would like to do this pattern again in a worsted/bulky thicker yarn, that it is a little more forgiving, eg so you can't see every twisted/slightl;y messed stitch. and my ribbing on the bottom is not as tight as i would like, and the whole sweater could be longer....
can any experts recommend  a yarn I should try? I think I know about guage and could adjust... i have problems with brands/types other than the number (4) designations.
thanks! Cheesy

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Cute!

For yarn, I like Cascade Eco Wool. You get a lot for your money.
