Last week, I had three top-down sweaters on the needles. I’m happy to report that one is finished (and I’ll show you on Friday!).
Something to Ponder
My Something To Ponder, however, fared a sad fate:
I tried it on, and it just wasn’t fitting right… I discovered after I had been knitting a while that my gauge was off by 1/2 stitch/inch (which ends up being a really big deal!). So, off to the frog pond for this one!
My Kyuu is progressing nicely:
It’s also 1/2 stitch off in gauge (what is up with me? I even actually did a gauge swatch this time!), but because this is a wrap-around piece you can wear different ways, I’ve decided that it’ll be alright and to go ahead with it!
I’m knitting a second Wingspan, this time with leftover bits of yarn from my stash. (come back tomorrow to read my Wingspan-knitting tips!). Here’s what it looks like so far:
Curious about why it’s not on a knitting needle? That’s because my Addi broke during sit & stitch last night!
In the grand scheme of things, it’s not a big deal… they come with a lifetime warranty, so I can send it back for a new one. But it derailed my knitting for a bit! Fortunately, I think I have another size 5 somewhere…
