Gee, I don't want to read about getting gauge with 7s and Cascade 220 when I bought a size 8 32" circ today specifically for this sweater. I was kind of trying to decide between a denim colored Mission Falls 1824 wool and the bright turquoise Cascade 220 tweed I decided to sell the day before the Samus pattern came out. Good thing nobody wanted to buy it. I am ALMOST finished with the cotton Eyelet Cardi. I have resolved not to start Samus until the other sweater is done, though I am sitting here thinking, "Hmmm, should I knit a swatch with the Cascade?" Only one hank is wound into a ball. It's still near 90 degrees here.
