Juliet...So close
It's coming along though I have a feeling that it's going to be too big. This is sorta funny because I usually take a large but I thought that I'd make the medium size based on the experience of other having their's turn out too large. Then I even threw in some decrease once I separated the sleeves for some shaping because it seemed to be turning out rather large-- how is this when my gauge was perfect and the WIP is huge!? So then, since I decreased until just under the bust decreasing the number of stiches, I decided to knit the lace in the small size. It still seems like it's going to be a bit too big for me. Yeesh, I just can't last sweater for myself was too big on me too :'-( Hopefully it will work out or someone will be receiving a nice gift.
Edit: Finished sweater 10/30/07....still need to block.

Oh, I hate it when that happens. Maybe it will be something that can be fixed with a hot water soak. I hope.
