|Newborn Vertebrae Cardigan|
I'm going to have to find a very fat teddy bear to wear this little sweater, because it ain't so little. Unless the newborn is dinosaur sized there's no way it would come close to fitting a human. It just goes to show you how much gauge matters. Betsy, a fellow knitter showed me hers, and hers is literally half the width of mine. She's a tight knitter and used a US 4 needle and I'm a loose knitter and used a US 3.
Oh well, I'm going to go ahead and finish it since all I have left is the tiny (yeah, right!) sleeves and the ribbed edging. It will be good practice because I hear picking up the stitches for the edging can be tricky. Plus, I'm sure I can find some kind of short, fat stuffed critter that it will fit.
And yes. Yes, I am bundled up in a fleece blanket with Christmas designs on it. It's hot outside but it is Freezing in our house today.
