Another pattern I've had my eye on for a long time. I also had the yarn (Madelinetosh DK in Tart) chosen for this since the beginning and knew I had to knit it someday. It's one of my favorite yarns for sweaters and cardigans, since it has amazing colorways and pills very little but it's also quite expensive and not so easy to find in Europe

When Joji announced the Fall KAL I couldn't resist the opportunity and cast-on as soon as we came back from vacation.

Changes: just the ribbing - I knit a twisted 1x1 rib instead of garter
Otherwise followed the pattern as written and didn't have any problems with the directions.

Sizing: I knit the smallest size (30/32) because my experience with this yarn tells me that it grows a bit with blocking and the lace pattern on this sweater is both in the front and back and so quite stretchy. I could've probably added some waist shaping if I wanted, but decided not to in the end.

Yarn: Madelinetosh DK in Tart (used a bit less than 4 skeins)
