June 19- Almost dry so I tried it on and it fits well, with a little ease.

June 16-I didn’t try this on very much once I got past the arm shaping because i didnt want to bother with finding another long needle to thread thru. It looks like I should have. It seems to widen after the garter yoke in back. Uggh. Even size ones and knitting for xs it seems loose and floppy in the back. I knit really tightly on this and kind of hurt my wrists, so I’m not re-knitting if it’s too big. I wish, though, that if it’s loose after blocking it would at least be longer. Maybe blocking will rescue this:/

May 5- I used more yarn than expected because it needed to be doubled with my size 2 needles to seem substantial. However, I still can’t get gauge and the yarn store only has 3 more skeins. I was past the underarm but ripped it back because I don’t want it oversized, and bought size 1 circular needles (Who uses 48” circulars?) Now I just need to decide if I want to risk knitting it up with doubled strands and running out of yarn, or using one and it looking too loosely knit.
