Knitting in 2009!

Whoooo new year! I have alpaca socks and acrylic microfiber mittens on the needles, but it's time to cast on a new project!

"Hey, Teach!" for Mom's birthday, changed to k the body in one piece to armholes.
chest: 38
waist: 34
hips: 42
bicep: 12
length: 19
This puts it at a size M

Cast on 181 sts (mark 90 from each end-- side "seams")
Work 4 rows in 1x1 rib, ending with a WS row.
Work in st st until piece measures 8" from CO edge, ending with a RS row.
next row: [P8, p2tog] four times, p5. (m) 41 sts;
P4, p2tog, [p7, p2tog] nine times, p4. (m) 81 sts;
