So I "thought" I was cruzing along on Rogue. I even made it to the armholes. See the beautiful side cables?
And then I did what I should have done awhile ago. I measured her. Here's what happened:
Hummmm, that's a problem. Now I hear you saying "Smitten, did you check your gauge."
Yes. My gauge is spot on. See:
I really wanted Rogue to measure about 41", but the sizes were 39 1/2" or 43 1/2". I was too lazy to rewrite the pattern so I went with the 43 1/2". So I guess now that she will be frogged, I will get closer to the 41". By my calculations, if I make the 39 1/2" size, I should get 42".
Blogless Jill R, I hope this makes you feel a little better about the Peplum Jacket. It happens to all of us.
For the time being, I think I need to finish something I can feel good about. So I am working on the socks exclusively. I have one done and am almost the heel on the second sock.
I went with a picot bind off for a little extra girlness and stretch.
On another knitting front this book was released today. PassionKNITly preordered her copy on Amazon and brought it to SnB tonight. I haven't even got my copy yet. Be sure to stop by a book store to check it out. I'll post my pics of my patterns in the next few days.
