Jamaica Sweater

This is the sweater I'm working on out of Jamaica (all cotton yarn). I made some hats out of Jamaica for the girls and a friend undergoing chemo last summer. They liked the yarn, so I went and bought 4 more skeins which have just been sitting around. And I had found this cute pattern that I've been meaning to make for about a year or so. Got tired of the shawl, finished the valentines and cast this on. It's a pretty quick knit. The only question is: will it fit? I sized it down a couple of sizes and then read on Ravelry that it's too wide on almost everyone who made it . . . . Miss S is trying hard to convince me it should be for her, so I sure hope it will fit her . . .

I love that yarn - it actually has enough of each color that you can see it. I get tired of variegated yarns that give you only a couple of stitches of each color.

I love the color combos you get with this yarn. Most of them are bright and cheerful and the differences between the colors are pretty stark.
