new years resolution

Today is New Year's Eve and I am already thinking about my resolutions for the New Year.
One is to be more kind and thoughtful to others and two is to lose that 5 pounds (again) that I gained over the Christmas Holiday. Three is to stop just looking at and admiring my new Hanne mermaid kit, jump in and get the sweater done. My question is... Do I make the Medium? I am a size 8 sometimes a 10 . I made the Medium/Large ballerina and it is too generous. The gauge was correct, I am just poor at choosing the correct size, I guess . I did notice ,about two thirds of the way through my ballerina, that it was going to be too big but could not make myself start over.
What size have other mermaid knitters been choosing and are they happy with their size choice?


Happy New Year

I am a 10/12 and my medium Mermaid fits well. Could be a hair larger, but good. I love wearing it. So the Medium should be good for you.

My DIL is about your size (or slightly smaller) and she looks great in the small, the medium would have swamped her. The patterns seem to run large.

I have a bust size of 38 inches and I knit a medium. My tension is on the tight side but it fits. I normally fit a UK 12 in knitwear. Think that's a 10 in the US???

I am a size 8 and knitted the small ballerina. The sizing is perfect and I knit very tight. I would go for the small size mermaid.

I am a 42/44" so I really hope the large that I am knitting will fit in the end. I have also picked out the next HF I would love to knit which is the pyramide, then the ballerina, then the........ Ho Ho Ho....
