Dudes, it’s seriously hot around these parts. It’s currently 100 degrees and it’s cooler than yesterday. Where is my fog? How about a single damn cloud? Awol. Our hot days are few and far between in my part of the world, so no AC. Just knitting talk to soothe that fevered brow.
I started the back of Phildar Pull 021-T9-14 aka Cable Cross Pullover. I’ve actally done more than what is shown in that uber crappy picture, but my first attempt was pulled out rather far along. I thought my gauge was pretty darn close, but when knitting something larger than a 10×10 cm square it turned out to be a tad bigger. I was getting a size larger than anticipated or wanted. Ripped and knit one size down to get the size I wanted. That seems to be working. It’s odd, I’m a loose knitter but am using one size up needle than the one called for. Gauge is really close and my resulting fabric is nice. Oh well, it’ll be fine. Phildar schematics are good and I’ll be able to make a human fitting garment. At least my sweaty brain thinks so.
