Knitting Up A Storm!


Wednesday, January 25, 2006

Try, Try and try again and you will get it. That is what they say, and my dear Watson I have to agree. I am determined to use this orange GGH Bali for something, anything. I made a swatch using 3.5mm (versus the 4.0mm I used for Tubey and Essential Stripe Sweater) and the fabric looks way better. I love the stitch definition now, it looks crisper.

Going down a few needles size also changes the gauge, and now I get 22 sts/32 rows, which works perfect for Cutaway. I've been eyeing that pattern for awhile now and quite happy this yarn will work with it.

I have no idea why I can't give up on this yarn. Maybe it was waiting for Cutaway. However, if Cutaway doesn't work out with it then out to the curb it goes. Just kidding. I will try again, maybe.
No knitting progress to report - because I'm in the 'I hate knitting' mode right now.
Have a good one.
