Yes - you would want to try some smaller needles to see if you can get closer to row gauge without impacting stitch gauge too much. That is way off on rows. Can we assume you're making a large gauge...

Agree it'd be super easy to at least try something. (Not sure if you've seen the other pictures out there that show all the different ways to wear this thing, but it is pretty cool.)

No - but I'm sure I will. I need to try more of the ones that work with 2x2 ribbing since I sometimes use that in hats. I find myself more eager to get going on the hat than in taking the time to...

I also like the Buttonhole cast on (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zefsGM1AKKk) from her. Super stretchy and a single cast on so no need to worry about running out of tail!

Do you have a link to the pattern or at least a pic so we can see the item? It makes a difference if you're working both armholes at once vs. working to a neckline and back.

You have the right idea...
