I have a list of things that are bumming me out right now:
1. I have a headache.
2. It is really hot.
3. Lost is over forever. I will write more about that topic later this week.
4. I started a cute little top yesterday. I had checked a gauge swatch and it was right on the money. The gauge was determined on stockinette stitch. There is very little straight stockinette stitch in this top. I tend to knit a little "loose" so, I decided to go down a size. I cast on, knit for about 2 inches and noticed that it looked a little wide. I measured it and it was about 7 inches wider than the schematic tells me it should be. Not convinced by the math, I measured it against the top I recently made that I wish wasn't so big on me...
I think I have to take out at least two repeats of the pattern. Bummer. I like the yarn - It's Mirasol wach'i - 100% cotton, but not too hard on my hands. The needles are the new circulars by Signature. I love them! These are size 6. I also bought some in sizes 5 and 7. Love, love, love them. Mwah! ( I love that Teresa Giudice!)
