Having Cake and Eating it too

August 16, 2012 2 Comments

Who says you can't have cake and eat it too? Glazed Pecan & Antique Lace by Madelinetosh.  I bought the worsted weight instead of a chunky yarn, which I am just going to find the correct gauge and size up from there. I did a swatch last night and cast Aidez on, I am loving the silvery gray tones.  Not sure which sweater Glazed Pecan will become, but I have a lot of ideas! My swatch:  4 sts to the inch on a size 9 needle.  My previous version had 3.75 sts to the inch.  I made the XS then.  So I am sizing up to the size S with the worsted weight on a size 9 needle, and so far I think it looks just right.
