I cast off for ESS last night and the damn sweater is too freaking tight around my hips. This really shouldn't surprise me because I know how big they are. So, I ripped out 5" and will increase 4 stitches (=1") every 6th row until I have 4" more in width. Then ribbing, then EZ sewn off cast off method. I need all the elasticity I can get.
No biggie, really. If this doesn't work, I am going to rip everything out and give one of my knitting buddies the yarn. Why? Because this would be 2nd sweater I have used this yarn for and it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked.
Hey knitter buddies - don't get your hopes up too high, I have a feeling it will work out for me. But just in case, I have a plan for this yarn come what may!
