It’s a little hypocritical of me to write this while I actually have a sweater active on the needles, but I generally don’t try to knit sweaters anymore. Way back in The Day, maybe 2005 or 2006, I finished three of them. One came out too small to put on, the other two too large to wear in public. I thought I had checked my gauge, but you know, I live in a universe where two and two don’t reliably add up to four, so the bad results didn’t really surprise me.
The good news is that, at almost six months pregnant, this Hourglass sweater now fits me. Sweet.
