Footies and a Sweater
I used 2 strands of Cascade 220 Superwash and US sz 6 dpn's.
I did learn the Channel Island cast-on from Meg Swansen with split welt on the sides. I kept the side stitches in purl and took in the waist a bit for an hourglass figure. I kept knitting in the round setting in the sleeves and only doing a 3-needle bind-off at the shoulders....the rest is seamless.
Mom sent me the yarn (a little heavier than worsted) and I used US sz 7 needles.
