Well, guess how I messed up *this* time?
Do you notice that the green part of the skirt seems a little ... snug?
Well ... that's because I seemed to think a size 4US knitting needle was the same thing as a 4mm knitting needle.
Yeah. Really. 7 years of knitting, and I still mess that one up. I knit 28 rows with a 3.5mm needle because I just glanced at the directions, saw a "4," and assumed it meant size 4US. A size 4US needle made for an overskirt that was juuuuuust a tad too tight.
I sighed, considered my options, pulled it all back, and started over with a 4mm needle. Which, in my knitting collection, means 4.25mm, because apparently a size 6US is both 4mm and 4.25mm. And I only had one 4mm, so I had to go with the pair of 4.25mm. I can't wait to see how this turns out.
To prove to myself that I still know how to knit, I made a Baby Leaves Baby Hat.
I haven't been knitting a whole lot lately. Summer is passing from eastern Maryland, and the cooler weather has meant I've been able to get some long-neglected work done around the house (painting, clearing out, etc) and I've been running a lot more in preparation for my half of a 16-mile two-partner relay this Saturday.
So ... don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Work-in-Progress Wednesday!
Even Momma Girl is ashamed of my skirt project.
