Fitted knitting - not a perfect start!
It is that time of year - This is the closest thing we got to Easter decoration in our house. But I really liked it! I hope you all have a nice holiday. Right now I look at the heavy rain outside my windows. Not the best weather for a Norwegian Easter, but then there is always knitting :-)
So everything looked okay with my turtleneck, until I suddenly realised that I had done too many increases. How could that be - it did not look like the upper front was long and wide enough. Then I did a count on my stitches and rows. I had 22 sts and 34 rows on 4X4 inch. Ups....It should have been 18 sts and 24 rows! And I did a swatch that looked right....I guess I must have used some other needles and knitted less tight.
Not the best start. And then I just wanted to knit on a different project. So now I am down to the waist on the boatneck. But look at this....the ribbed columns are starting too soon. A new gauge check - 19 sts and 26 rows. It should have been 18 and 24. I think I will do a little changes here....if I don't change my mind.
I also had to untangle some of the yarn - a little white kitten had some fun with my yarn!
