It’s Tuesday Queuesday! Don’t know what that is? I don’t blame you, we just made it up! In these posts we’ll talk about our plans for future projects. A place to gather thoughts and figure things out.

- Pattern: Textured Pullover, Project Page

- Difficulties foreseen:
- Sizing, as per usual. Pattern suggests 2-4″ of positive ease. If I get close on my gauge swatch, I’ll do size 43.5.

Final size decision:
I’m going to go ahead with size 43.5″. I don’t want it to be tight, and with a slightly tighter gauge *and* the next size down being right at zero ease, I’m not going to risk it.
