Color...

change already! :) I truly wanted to make mine in a brown shade and I found a great deal on the yarn....so I present..

Cotton Fleece in Truffle

I got enough for my top and the leftovers to go for the sleeves of another sweater. I also finally got all the needles in that I had ordered! I am ready to swatch now! Look forward to this and all the tops we've seen so far! Nice job everyone!

ETA: Ok, I am about to swatch in the round for this...which needle do I use the US6 or 4. It doesn't specifically state it, and as I haven't made a lot of sweaters, not sure on the rule of thumb! Thanks!

I believe you use the 6 for the body and the 4 for the ribbing at the hem.

I agree with Kellyhl. I think you should swatch with the US6 and make sure you swatch in the round.

Thanks! I will use the 6 for swatching! (in the round) That's what I had a question about. Since they didn't specifically state which size to swatch with...grrr I hate to swatch too!
