It isn't my style either. My D.D. is a small person and I think it will look nice on her.

Yes I'm largish too, and anyway, I want my knit sweaters with long sleeves, I get much too warm internally to wear a short sleeve knit - I've tried them. And for summer knits it's a light yarn in a tank style top.

A question: after getting gague on our swatch, should we wash and dry it and re-measure, or isn't it necessary with cotton yarn?

I hope it isn't necessary, as I didn't...

Yes, don't give up! You won't be too far behind. I haven't even gotten my yarn yet; I'm hoping it comes today.

doodknitwit... Dont worry to much. It took me just about an hour to knit 2 rounds.. Yes that is a 2. I can see the rib part is a very time intensive labor. But the out come will be well worth the work!

I'm getting ready to cast on. I'm going to try something a friend told me about. If you are going to be knitting in the rib. Use the long tail cast on. You measure 3 times the inches of your size +6 inches of yarn. Holding two needles together casting on. This should give you just the right amount of yarn for your cast on. Lets see if it works.

I measure long-tail by giving it about a foot for each 20 stiches... It works pretty well for Aran or for worsted weight yarn.
