So yeah, Saxon Scarf is looking pretty good.
I stayed true to my word and cabled my little heart all weekend! .... Ok I cheated a little. But I would say I'm about 3/4 of the way done. Say: another 12" to go? I should definately finish this in time for x-mas. I have to admit that my bubble burst a tad when I saw this post on Craftster. When this was all said and finished I was hoping to get some bragging rights on my favorite crafting forum, but someone already beat me to it. (I like mine better anyways) :P
So after hunching over Saxon (O.o) all weekend I caved in Sunday night and worked on Hourglass. Ahhh good old mindless knit. The lower body is coming along nicely. Well, WAS coming along nicely:
Until I held it up to my body and realized that it was turning out to be a tight knit. Hmm... I pondered. I checked the pattern. I'm working the size that will be 37" when all said and done. That sounded right at first. At least it did to my delusional brain. So I went to bed trying to convince myself that I knit the right size. I mean, I wear a 36 x bra. So 37" would fit me right???? RIGHT??
I took a tape measure to myself and it turns out that my chest is a good 38.5" (not that I'm complaining). Conclusion: the sweater I'm knitting isn't getting over my jumblies. Tonight I will be ripping out hourglass, and starting anew with the next size up. Grrrrr..... You see I have a love/hate relationship with my chest. Sometimes I like it, and sometimes I wish I were a bit smaller so I can wear cute little tanktops without showing off my OSBH (over the shoulder boulder holder). I guess this mistake was me wishing I was a teensy bit smaller. Anyways: Hourglass Sweater, take 2 --> next up on eat-sleep-knit
