While the Rowan 4-ply was beautiful, I would not use it for a cabled sweater, unless I was making it for a Barbie doll. It was much too small. I exchanged it today for Artyarns Supermerino, and got 5 1/2 sts per inch on size 5's and 6 sts per inch on size 4's in pattern G. I think I'll go with the size 4's. All this swatching has taught me I want to do a pullover in the round, not a cardigan back and forth. Crossed in Translation, I'm ready for you!

I'm chomping at the bit for the Crossed in Translation Knit-along, which doesn't start for a whole nother 5 days! How will I last??? Has anyone tried figuring out how to upsize their pattern yet? I'm no tiny Japanese girl, myself, so I'll need to upsize a little. I bought a beautiful Rowan 4-ply merino, which is just waiting to jump on the needles!
