Juliet
So is anyone knitting Juliet? I started last night. I am using Malabrigo double stranded. It is going along quite quickly!

I am using Bernat Softee Chunky. I didn't want to wait for yarn to come in the mail and there was the Bernat waiting at Wal Mart for me! So far, it is knitting up nice and soft. I am hoping it will not be stiff when I get to the bottom. Have you seen the KIA at http://www.sexyknittersclub.blogspot.com/ ?

I'm knitting a Juliet-inspired cardigan for my 2-1/2-year-old. I'm using Bernat Satin Sport with Bernat Softee Baby, and it's taken just under 2 skeins for the first and 1 skein for the last. I'm trying to make a decision on the sleeve length: I'll probably go with the cap sleeves, but I've been contemplating long sleeves as well. I didn't buy the pattern, so it's been fun trying to guess from pictures!

April - I did join that other KAL. I was worried mine would be too stiff since I am double stranding. But it is coming along nice. Soft and squishy. I just separated the sleeves (I'm going to make them a bit longer - more short sleeve than cap sleeve) so I shoudl be to the lace soon.

Jackie - cool! I could never just knit something like that without a pattern.

I'll take pictures today to share my progress.

Got anything in your stash you could use? Anything worsted or bulky will work!

I did start this awhile ago using 2 strands Simply Soft. Yuck - too bulky and I think I like SS for afghans but definitely not clothing.

I'm hot natured so I'd like to make it single stranded. I have Cascade Cloud 9. I have 10 skeins approx 1090 yards. I'm also a big girl w/a bust size (largest part) of 45". However, reading around Ravelry has given me the clue that this knits up big and someone shared that the bust size measurement should actually be under the arms/high bust measurement which makes it 41" for me. And many are downsizing 2 sizes. So I'm confused! this is my first garment for me...help.
