Yes, it looked bigger before. Yes, I’ve knitted many more rows than this. Unfortunately, the gauge fairy didn’t let me know that I was delusional until I had knit the ribbing and another four inches of sweater.

Gauge off, rip. RIP.

Start over, hopefully this time on the right size needles. For the record, the ribbing this go-around is on 4.5mm, the main knitting will be on 5.0mm.

I’ll report back later as to how this all works out.

  1. A kindred spirit here after frogging back some vacation knitting. How did two flaws in the dye come at the same stitches in two rows leaving an obvious white spot in the middle of autumn colours?
