The joys of swatching and getting guage and knitting and getting huge stretch!
Yesterday I cast off Gabi Blue ready for blocking. With a house full of visitors incuding my niece it wasn't really appropriate to lay it out. As such I moved straight on to the Summer Tee. Somehow I have misplaced the yarn in the colourway i planned so i went hunting for an alternative Lilac BWM Cotton it is!
I settled on knitting one size, it would be a bit loose, but I could adjust as I went. I figured with the flare at the hips that would be fine.
After knitting about 30 rows I realised I had about 15 extra centimetres around (well in excess of the difference between the 2 sizes. Suffice to say it would have swum on me. As such I have frogged the lot and cast on for the smaller size so my progress is only about 6 rows.
