I'm going to try bamboo 9s and 10s and see if that makes a difference.

Re: CO numbers... I checked the website, and the CO numbers for the Glee sweater were originally incorrect. It doesn't say anything about the Wicked sweater. Here's the email address: knit@zephyrstyle.com

I read that the cable pattern needs to be divisible by 8. If your size isn't, just alter it so that it is and you should be fine.

i'm toying with tearing out an old project i never finished, or my first sweater i made and never wear to knit this one instead....
my only concern? it's manos wool, and it's really warm. wonderful, but warm which is why i never wear it....maybe if it's knit in this wider neck/short sleeved sweater i'd wear it with a tank underneath?
because as a long sleeved turtleneck it's KILLER hot!

i put up a picture of my aran sweater i'm toying with tearing out in the what'cha knitting section...it's worsted weight...and it's just sitting here...i'm just nervous i wouldn't have enough to finish it...i've got 2 balls past what is done in that photo...cables take up lots of yarn, right? maybe i'll have enough for wicked...

I reeeally wanted to use the Artyarns Supermerino since http://www.sarahsyarns.com has good prices on it... But I'm still too broke for even $60-$70 on a sweater. So I'm looking into KP for my other options...

I am pretty sure I am getting 8 skeins of Supermerino in the gray, black, white colorway (#117) for my birthday. Knittingzone.com has a couple of colorways on sale. They no longer have the one I picked, hopefully because my hubby bought it all!

Meanwhile, I'll try to get gauge with my Malabrigo to do the SS version.

Have pattern in hand and 2 colors of Malabrigo to choose from:

I'm going with the Azul Bolita and saving the Terracota for a different sweater pattern. The colors look brighter than in person, as the above yarns are more earth and jeweled toned.

Now, to get gauge...

Hildy,

I am getting 18 stitches/4 inches with my #8 options. I did not count row gauge, I think everything is measured in inches in the pattern, so I am not too concerned about that.

I might try the 7s just to see what the difference is and which fabric I like better.

I'm using 100purewool merino (same as Malabrigo).

I just downloaded the pattern so I'll have to do a little more reading.

I tried my size 7 Addis & 7/8 Denise needles, but made gauge with KP Options size 8 (17.5 is as close as I'm going to get). Since it's so late, I'll cast on in the morning before the kiddos get up and we begin our school day.

I'll post some pics, hopefully.

I got gauge
I got gauge using 7 addis and knit picks andean silk. I can't wait to start this sweater but am making myself finish at least one of the projects on my needles now. I already have 4 projects going. I hope to finish the irish hiking scarf tonight and maybe the bath mat this weekend. If all goes as I hope I can cast on Wicked early next week.
