It’s Monday, and a with a busy week of spring cleaning, writing, photography, costume-making (yes, costumes in May. My daughter’s school has a thing about re-enactment field trips. This one will turn them all into Miwok Indians…), jewelry-making and knitting ahead, I just want to say, hooray! I finished my socks!
Here, I thought I’d finish them in Florida. I guess in some ways you could call me an optimist. In other ways, you could call me overbooked. Hmm.
I just swatched for my Something Red Sweater. Suspiciously on gauge for the same size needles as pattern. Ususally I go down one or two sizes right off the bat. I think part of what’s happening is that I know this yarn could stretch out, and so I’m purposely knitting tighter.
I also think I’ve been a wee bit tense lately and my knitting is exemplifying this.
Well, I’ll either go with the swatch recommendation, or go down a needle size and have a gin and tonic.
