I've put off starting mine for 2 months. In swatching, my stitches look best on a 2.5 mm bamboo (have the needle on order - not easy to get in the US). But I'm worried about gauge. Usually row gauge doesn't matter so much, but is real important on this. Did yours come out right in length and width without adjusting?

Fantastic, what a lovely jacket, well done.

A link on Knitter's Review forum brought me to your website. Your Mermaid is beautiful! Seeing your pictures helped me immensely, as I am knitting Mermaid too, in exactly the same colors. After knitting to the half-way point of the back, I made the sleeve, and ... catastrophe. The sleeve is too small (3-4cm smaller than the armhole). I am getting gauge exactly, both stitch and row, using a 2.5mm Addi turbo, so I am very frustrated. I see from your pictures that it appears you had the reverse problem; your sleeve seems bigger than the armhole on the body?!
Also, isn't is funny how we are all knitting the same things, but everybody does it differently? For example, I *always* wet block, and have never ever steam blocked. I am petrified that the steam would cause the wool to felt...
