outfit along (#OAL2014). I've had to go up 2 full needle sizes to get gauge, and since that's the same thing I had to do on My First Sweater, I'm thinking this will be a consistent norm for me and anything that needs to fit. I'm still not 100% in love with the fact that my yarn is kind of creamy colored, but I've read up on how wool is bleached (oddly enough, you use hair bleaching peroxide!) and I may try a mild solution on the finished sweater. I didn't want to do anything yet because it occurred to me that part of the color may be from dirt/solutions that they put on the wool to put through the winding machine. I doubt it will make a huge difference, but I want to just wash the yarn before I start breaking out the peroxide. I'm very excited about my Myrna Cardigan :) I think I'm going to omit the little peek-a-boo hole at the upper back though - it's just not me. And as a perk, it will make the knitting easier, lol.
