I loved the bright color of my first Beatnik, but this one is a more familiar color. Like a sweater my husband used to have, the color of Fall leaves, or my tortoise shell cat. It's like an old friend.
This friend approves.
Stockinette's notes for minimal sewing. Plus, I can always change my mind at the last minute, right?
For this cabled sweater, I decided to knit the xs size and use smaller needles to get a 31" or 32" bust measurement before washing, and a 34" - 36" after. I bought size 2 needles so that I could knit in a more relaxed way. All of that tight knitting on size 5s was hard on my shoulders and neck. The only difference may be that all of the cables keep it from widening (or blooming) as much as anticipated. If that happens, then I'll have a sweater the same size as my first one, and that's no big deal because I really like the fitted version too.
