Just had to share a triumph. I'm working on my very first actual sweater. I'm doing it in the round, top down, so I realize I could have tried it on as I went, but (a) I really, really hated the thought of taking it off the needles and putting it back on, and I didn't have a long enough cable to keep it on the needles, and (b) honestly, I don't have the experience to know how to adjust as I go.
So, I've been a little afraid that it wouldn't be big enough....but I just bound off the body and tried it on...IT FITS!!
Now....to do the sleeves and I'll have a new sweater for fall!
(Thanks for letting me share. I'll try to get pictures at some point).
