Mermaid - up and running

Just wanted to publicly announce that, after 4 years of patiently waiting in my craft box, Mermaid is on the needles! I got the spreadsheet for the Medium size from Amy although after (too much) deliberation I have decided to knit the Small with a few minor changes. I needed spreadsheet initially to make sure I was on the right track but, having just finished the first arm gusset, I'm getting familiar with the pattern, even the short rows.
I've benefited from the information provided by all of you who have knitted Mermaid previously and am happy to share any info with you (apart from the spreadsheet, of course!) or answer any questions you might have about sizing, quantities of yarn and alterations. Hoping to keep my blog reasonably up to date (see the link to Tessa on the right hand side of the page).

Congratulations on the mermaid. Just getting started. I sent an email for the spreadsheet, but have had no response. Any suggestions.

Hi Janette, Tessa here (but forgotten login at the moment!!). I understand that Amy sends out the spreadsheets regularly but perhaps not immediately. Have you decided which size to do? I can give you info about sizing if you're not sure how many rows/ridges you will end up with at various points. Other than that the pattern is actually pretty straightforward. The only bit that really got me concentrating hard was the underarm gusset - there were short rows and edge decreases all going on at once!
