I invested $80 in my newest project- a tank sweater for the summer. I bought 8 balls of Katia Idea Jeans ribbon/tape in lime green and Laura at The Yarn Co. wrote a pattern for me. It cost $9.95 a ball. Here's the yarn: On Sunday and Monday, I knit up Josh's Noro hat. I forgot to do a gauge, as Nicky suggested after I had to switch to larger needles (because the store didn't have any more circular 8s), so it came out too big. Josh's head measured 22" around, so the hat should have been 20" but it turned out to be 23"! I was so mad at myself. I felt like such a fuckup. However, once I remembered that I had forgotten to do the gauge, I felt a little better. Dumb, and kicking myself, but better. Josh reasoned that it was only a hat and it only took me two days and not two months. I ended up taking the whole thing apart so I can reuse the yarn. I did some swatches on different size needles and then with two strands and I was pleased. Actually, Josh was pleased. He kept saying, I want it to be like the hat you made for your dad. Thicker! I finished Kerin's birthday present. I still need to figure out what to make for Kerin's baby, but I have a few weeks. I think I'll send Kerin her present now because the baby is due on her birthday and I don't know if she'll have the opportunity to use my gift as much once the baby arrives. No, it's not a maternity sweater.
