There are recipes? Oh god! I need to have a closer look at this book this evening! The pants fit size-wise. The crotch is a tiny bit too low and they are a tiny bit too long, so I'll just redo that line at the top and it'll be perfect!! I can still wear them the way they are though, so I might end up being too lazy and wearing them like this too Cheesy

And the long awaited pictures:

And the parcel left the post office this morning. The man told me 5 business days, so hopefully it'll arrive this week or at the beginning of the next week.

Thanks SevsOnlyGirl for organising this Smiley

3  Gauge problem in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Josée~Madalia on: April 26, 2006 07:43:28 AM
BIG question...

I have recently started knitting a vest as can be seen in the Harry Potter movies. So far it looks like this:

I checked my gauge when I began and realised I was way off... I had something like 22 stitches per 10 cm when they recommended 20, and 30 rows per 10 cm when the gauge recommended 26. And so I started trying to make my stitches looser. You can see where I actually started doing this (maybe not on the picture, but I see it when I look at my knitting). But now I just realised that if I keep going like this, my finished back won't be the same as the front, as I obviously won't be changing gauge in the middle of my finished front. So, the big question is should I consider undoing it all and starting over with bigger size needles so I get the right gauge? And if so, what needles should I use? I'm currently working on 4.5 mm needles. Should I go with a 5 or perhaps a 5.5 mm?

Remember I really don't mind undoing and redoing this. I'm a very patient person and my goal here is: 1) to learn to do it properly 2) to have a close to perfect vest when I'm done

I'm currently knitting a Ravenclaw Scarf in the round (as I'm a hopeless Harry Potter fan!)

It currently looks like this:

It rolls up at the bottom, but that seems to be normal. I had to redo it at first though, because it had twisted. The second time around, I would simply often check that all my stitches were pointing towards the ground. I would check quite often, in fact, for about the first 10 rows. Then the knitting becomes long enough and you just can't make that mistake.

Good luck!
