I ordered 3.0 mm needles with a 40 inch cable last weekend and they came during the week. Until I had that needle I had put this one on hold. You need to be able to check the fit while working it, and a 32 inch cable was not long enough to do that. I finished the bust shaping today. I ended up doing 3 complete repeats of the lace pattern and did the bust shaping on rows 1, 5, 9 and 13 of the 4th repeat of the lace pattern. Now I knit even until I get to the waist shaping.
So far the fit is perfect.
