Oh, and to anyone who is interested in a followup to my quest to find the perfect stitch counter, I found this beauty at Jo-Ann yesterday: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat2874&PRODID=prd35772&source=search  It locks and you can string it on a cord and wear it as a pendant.  Hooray!!

I've got a similar gadget -- it's a golf score counter.  Also pendant/keyfob material :-)

Ohh thats super cool that it has a lock on it. I have a little red clover counter, but Im always write down my tally before putting setting it down or putting it in a bag for fear that it may get bumped and screw up my count.

Thank you eatyerhartout and motleycruiser!

I used a combination of the two - a larger crochet hook and it's much better, well, at least I can get it over my head now  Cheesy

This is where I am right now. After separating the sleeves, I added enough stitches to make the total number a multiple of lace repeat. So nice to finally not have to sort out the lace and the increases.

I bet...I seemed to have enough trouble thinking through using different sized needles. That lace pattern is lovely though. Is the lace your own pattern?

Aww, thank you both. I hope it turns out as nice as I want it to (some of the stuff I knit tend not to, others surprise me).

It might be hard to tell from the picture, but the lace is ordinary clover lace like this:

Clover Lace:

Rows 1 and 7 K
Row 2 and all Wrong side rows P
Row 3 K2, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, *k5, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo*, rep from * to *
Row 5 K3, yo, ssk, *k6, yo, ssk*, rep from * to *
Row 9 K1, *k5, yo, sl1, k2tog, psso, yo*, rep from * to *
Row 11 K7, *yo, ssk, k6*, rep from * to *

So, I'm sort of depressed, but not dampened in spirit  Cheesy

Okay, so I am SUPER skinny (my waist is only 26") but i have broad shoulders, so much so that when I was in a musical in eighth grade, the director asked me to remove my shoulderpads from my coat and I said I didn't have any in. Eek.

Well, I measured around my shoulder blades and right above my bust, and it came to 30 inches, and beneath my bust is 28. So, I'm basically a triangle with a serious problem. I tried on after I decreased, but I didn't make enough of them initially. So I had to frog all the way back to the 30 inch mark and work from there. It was a lot of math. but I can do it, I hope.
