So far, I've read but not posted on MWK -- appreciating and learning so much. For the past several months, a couple of wonderful knitting teachers have guided me from swatches to scarfs to hats to felted hats/bags/mittens and, finally, to a sweater (well, a v-neck vest without sleeves -- kind of sweater-lite). The pattern is from Green Mountain Spinnery ( http://www.spinnery.com/proddetail.php?prod=46 ) providing good experience with adjusting a pattern: careful attention to gauge and several try-ons resulted in a pretty good fit. As several of you have noted, we always see something we might have done differently -- and, in this case, I'd have narrowed the shoulders slightly and decreased the neck V over more rows.
Ready for the coming fall season here in Vermont with a new vest!
