Finally finished the red jumper of doom
Thanks to everyone here's advise on sizing etc. I had to start this twice cos my gauge was off. I finally got it done today - it still needs washed and it has cat fur on it - fingers crossed for the final try on!
(if you are on ravelry I wrote more about it here)

Thanks guys, I'm having trouble deciding what to do next now - thinking about researching how to do bust darts, but scared it might be too complicated!

I think that's where I found the excel file I downloaded off the internet ages ago, you put in your measurements and it gives you numbers out the other end. Now I just have to work out what to do with those numbers! I've never knit anything in the round top down either, but my sis gave me a 1450 yard skein of Mountain Colours Weavers Wool for my 30th birthday that she bought on holiday in America, so I was thinking about making the Mystique Sweater with it. Not sure if it's a good idea though!

Everything in this house has cat fur in it, trouble is I think the cat was licking one of the balls of wool when I was knitting it
