~Desperate for stitch markers to use with my US 13 needles, Barb and I headed off to the store to purchase supplies for making markers. Success, I think my handmade heart stitch markers turned out well. I do love hearts. We purchased supplies to make smaller markers too.
Mean time, trying to get the gauge for the Mystery Hat KAL is making me NUTS! I’ve gone down a size and tried 3 different sport weight yarns. I keep putting the new swatch measurements into the YarnPro app by Karen of Sweaty Knitter. Although it is really for sweaters, skirts, etc. I use it for my small projects. It has recommended going down a needle size, check. It has recommended using a different yarn, check. The latest message from YarnPro says: The finished measurement based on you stitch gauge is 108.00, or 88.00 inches larger than the pattern’s finished measurement. This project is giving me more gray hairs. I have enough thank you! I’m already down to US 3 needles, I’m not going any smaller.
