We had a peaceful hang around the house kind of weekend that was really great for finding knitting time. I spent hours knitting. Hours and hours watching a backlog of DVRed TV shows and knitting. It was really nice. I was able to knock out quite a bit of the sweater. It would have been more but my brain read something different than what the pattern said so I had to go back and knit a dozen rows twice.
This is my first time using Cascade 220 superwash sport. I’ve used Cascade 220, the worsted weight hand wash variety, many times. To be honest. this doesn’t seem much thinner than that. It does seem less smooth. Is this because of the superwash thing? There are a more than normal number of “fluffed” areas in the yarn. I’m guessing that’s the superwash thing too.
I’m not getting gauge but oddly enough I am close in measurement to the size I’m doing. I’ve got that nagging voice in my head telling me to “stop, rip, start again with different needles. Make a real gauge swatch. Don’t be a fool.” But I have close to correct measurements. What to do ? I’m leaning towards carrying on, for now anyway. Fingers crossed.
