I had some time to knit a bit more on my
sleeve swatch for Williamsro. After I did the first cable crossing, it seemed a bit more lace-like than this cardigan should. So, I thought that I perhaps should measure my gauge. I am usually a control-knitter, but my guage is off a quarter-inch over four inches (at least), indicating that I've relaxed a bit. (And the fabric is rather loose.) At this rate, I'll run out of yarn way before the sweater is finished....and I have extra.
So, I'll switch out my US 13 needles for US 11 and see what happens next.
Of course, I have no size US 11 needles in the house. Looks like I'll have to venture into Madison for a LYS excursion. I had planned to go to the Wisconsin Spin-In today with my SIL, however, her BIL is visiting this weekend and I have to travel to Dallas, Texas, on Sunday. So, no WISPININ this year. However, Madison is *much* closer, so I'll just take a *quick* trip there. *g*
It is certainly Autumn again here with the cooler temperatures. We were forecast for a possible light frost last night. I was surprised to see this rose in the garden this time of year. Well, I'm actually surprised to see roses in my garden at any time of the year but that's a whole other issue.
Because of the frost advisory, I cut the flower and it is now brightening my kitchen.
