Ribbit

Soooooo, I guess the reason that my sleeve looked so huge was that I was NOWHERE NEAR GAUGE. Close to a stitch per inch off. I knit loosely, but I didn't think it would be that bad.

I've dropped down to size 5's (from 7's) for the sleeve, figuring that if I've overcompensated I can move up a needle size when I get to the ribbing.

I'll post another photo later tonight when I've re-knit the whole thing........

Drat.

Oh bummer! I did a small swatch before...for the stitch guage...I rarely do row gauge because I figure I can compensate with measuring

That really hurts! Sorry to hear that.

Did you like the hand of the fabric? If you do, just keep the gauge you have and recalculate the stitches!

I so know what you are going through. My guage is looser than Brittany Spears after a few rounds of Tequilla shooters.
