1  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Getting the right gauge..... on: March 01, 2004 07:16:00 PM
I am moron, hear me roar.....I am attempting the "to dye for" sweater, using some great Italian angora I got on sale (and which will probably itch me so much I will never wear it....but the price was so good, what can I say...).  I have made sample swatches on size 13 needles (the recommended size for this project), size 10.5 AND size 11.  I can NOT get the right guage - I am like Goldie Locks - its either too big or too small, and the knit is so loose anyway that I am not sure if I am even accurately measuring it right - I can make it an inch bigger just with a wee pull..
Any suggestions on the way to get the correct measurment of a looser knit for gauge?
If I keep making swatches for gauge I will have nothing left to make the sweater with!
