Fellow Marigold-ers, I need your help.  I'm using the suggested US size 5 needles, along with the suggested Elegance yarn.  However, after 20 stitches and 28 rows, I'm supposed to have 4 inches, and I only have 3 inches.  My gauge is way off.  Here are pics:


It doesn't seem TOO horribly small, but I think I may run into some problems when I join the round.
The question: to frog or not to frog?

Love this shirt!

I am not a ruffle kind of girl so I didn't add the shoulders.  Pictures kind of stink.  I used Debbie Bliss Cathay in red on 5 circulars.

I started knitting this with a cotton rayon blend from garnstudio and I hate the way it looks at the moment!  it's in a dk weight and i'm knitting it looser.  There are tons of large holes.  My LYS owner says that it will look perfect after I block it. I am debating whether to keep knitting or breakdown and buy some yarn with animal fibers in it. Ugh... don't you just hate it when you think you find a suitabile substitute and it looks crappy.

I'm a little late, but this is my first knitalong, had to share!  Soooo happy with the way this turned out my "Ms. Olive" is gorgeous!  I ended up knitting the ruffles, I tried to crochet but trying to sc into each stitch 3 times was darn near impossible for me!!  I just picked up the stitches, then k in front, back, and in front again for each stitch and knit about 6 rows garter stitch.
And again, I love her! but not sure when/where to wear?  I made it out of a lighter weight merino wool- seems a little heavy for summer, but would it look weird with long sleeves under it for fall/winter? We'll have to see!

do u guys think that sugar and cream or whatever its called would work for this? ive got a lot of that lyin around..

I wouldnt' recommend Sugar and Cream for anything other than dishcloths -- or things that you don't mind looking like dishcloths after a washing.  For a sweater, get something that will hold up better and you'll like your garment more.

Knittenchicken,  I think it would look great with long sleeves.  It's the style this year.  If I ever get mine done...

It does look pretty small to me... it would suck to finish it and not be comfortable wearing it.  Just my thoughts.  I'll be interested to see what you decide to do, and your eventual finished product!

It has been frogged.  I'm swatching to find out what size needles I need to use to get gauge.
