Hello from hot, hot California where I am thinking that I must be more than a little nuts to start a sweater on a day that will be well over 100 degrees. The bright side is that my sweater is proof that Fall and Winter will really come!
I am knitting my sweater with Debbie Bliss Alpaca/Silk. It is a really pretty deep plum color. This yarn is soooo yummy! I am knitting mine in the round from the bottom up. I did not change the number of stitches to cast on. When I do the math with my gauge, it still comes out as the published size small. I want it snug and a little higher up on the shoulders. Haven't decided how I will do that yet. I knit my first two rows with Knit, Purl in the back loop.
I can't wait to see how the rest of us are doing.
