Thanks for all the great knitting advice yesterday. I appreciate it so much. I do knit pretty big gauge swatches and normally measure over 4 inches. I took Sarah's advice and measured what I had already knit over 6 inches and came up with 4.67 stitches per inch. (Thank you, Sarah!) We (that is Sarah and me) think I can continue on and get to 4.5 with some blocking. Phew.
Last night was my local craft swap. This time there were 8 of us so we each made 7 things. I have spent the last month or so of carpool/soccer/volleyball practice knitting fingerless mitts. I did one pair of Fetching (remember this?). I used that pattern as a template of sorts and came up with some other rib, cable and lace versions. They were a hit with the crafty ladies and I had fun making them.
Time for a new carpool project. What crafts are you doing on the go?
