The evil gauge gremiln has struck. I kept thinking “Boy that Russian Prime looks a leeeetle bit narrow” but I didn’t stop and measure.
Last night I finally did. And my nice 4.5 stitches per inch is now a nice 5.25. I’m knitting for a 39″ sweater. At 4.5. Which means 176 stitches (well, technically 175.5). But I’m actually getting 5.25. Which means I have a 33.5 inch sweater.
Before I rip I’m going to try a very severe blocking, but I don’t think it’s going to help.
Cross your fingers.
And remember to go with your instincts when something doesn’t seem quite right….
