First of all, thanks so much for all the comments and input on yesterday's post!  That's the most comments I've ever gotten and I'm pretty sure it's more than anything Finn and Ramius have gotten either.  I'm actually a little bit shocked that so many people are willing to entertain the idea of knitting in a finer gauge.  I appreciate those of you who spoke up and said you'd stick with buying finer gauge sweaters, or only knit them for tiny daughters - I totally understand your reasoning for that, also.  But the overwhelming majority of you seem to be open to the idea, so once I get Pattern 15 finished, I'll get started on a fine gauge sweater pattern - and I'll try to include a wide size range too.

I have been getting some spinning done - in between reading email comments - and I'm almost finished with the first bobbin of this merino and silk blend.  You can see some of the lighter and darker tones within the singles - this was hand dyed top.  I'm hoping to finish up this first bobbin today or tomorrow and get started on the second bobbin of singles.  

That's it for now, apparently, I've got some designing to do!

I'm glad to hear you may be desiging in finer gauge yarns. Although being ampley sized, it will take a lot of knitting to cover me, I don't like either the heat or bulk of the heavier gauges on me.
Thanks for considering that. I didn't get to respond yesterday, but am glad others did.

I think your theory is so true! I've knit quite a few lovely bulky sweaters for myself and I hardly ever wear them. What do I wear the most - my insanely fine gauge, purchased (on sale) grey cashmere sweater!
