Hello Everyone- 

I have a slight problem that I need others opinion on.  I got so excited to be getting towards the end of the boring stockinette that I forgot to swith needle sizes on the ribbing.  I bound off and everything.  Who thinks I could just leave it?  ( I'm really not a perfectionist)  Who thinks I should frog it and re-knit it with the 4's? 

If it looks okay, leave it. I usually do ribbing with the same needles I do the body in anyway.

Thanks, I think I'll leave it.  It might look a little better if I re-do it but I just HATE even thinking about it.  It's folding up at the bottom and I'm not sure if it's because of using the wrong needle size but I think I can block it and fix that problem.

I finished mine!  Grin  I added some length and some increases at the bottom, but otherwise it's as written.  I used Cotton Fleece in Twilight Green.

Wow everyone Green or not Green Gables looks so wonderful. I know this is not a great picture but I wanted to show off my Purple "gree" Gables

It turned out a bit big and a bit long but I just love it! It also some how has a bleach stain on one sleeve which I have no idea how got there since I don't even own bleach!!! But I think I can still ware it!



Seen here still a bit damp from blocking.

I have pictures on my blog.  www.gailknits.blogspot.com.  Mine is made out of the 2 balls of Cotton Fleece.  Sorry about the picture quality.  I was trying to take a pic of it myself and it's all fuzzy.

 I'm planning on knitting my next one.  This time it will be green!

One quick question. I started on my Gable today. I am not at home on my computer so I don't have the instructions in front of me. Should I be increasing every row or every other row? Thanks.

Ok. I figured out the increases.  I have another question though. In all of the picitures I see of people wearing their Green Gables none of the necklines are rolling. Mine is rolling terribly. How can I stop this? thanks.

How did you start? Did you purl then join or join then purl?  It may have to do with that.  I'm doing mine over and I noticed the first time I joined the stitches then purl and it started to roll.
