Troubles with Gauge.

My Mother finally agreed to let me make something for her.
It is a Alex, a dressy jacket from Debbie Bliss's Winter Magazine in Donegal Luxury Tweed.
I got the yarn from Julie on Tuesday, but when I use the recommended needles I end up with 3/4 inches missing from my swatch! Ugh! I knew I knit tightly, but so much???
I also got some yarn for Kelly's winter skirt. She is the only skinny-minny who can wear a chunky, cabled miniskirt and still look - well, skinny. I need to swatch it, design it and measure her. That will be traumatic - measuring her!

  1. You're not a tight knitter at all!! My new translator is learning how to knit and oh my, you can't move her stitches along the needle at all. That is tight.
