Like some other knitters in this KAL, I was worried about this ribbed bottom not fitting me. Ribbing usually looks sloppy on me the first time around. After I unknit the bottom, decrease stitches, and reknit it, it finally fits. I cannot remember how many times I've had to do that, but I'm trying to break out of that knit, worry, reknit cycle by starting smaller on my ribbing. I just don't knit very tightly.
This sweater has been no exception. I decided to knit a 32" bust, which also has a finished 32" waist measurement. My waist is smaller than that, but my hips are 35" so I think that's the measurement I'm needing to accommodate.
I knit on, but it was looking small... as in, toy poodle sweater small. After I had this week's goal finished (about 4 inches) I ran a large circular through it and tried it on. Whew! It does fit with room to spare, so I'm not going to think about it anymore.
Ah, bathroom photos. You can find more on my Ravelry and Flickr - obviously, I don't mean bathroom photos. The knitalong is happening here if you want to join in. You know you want to join in.
