my name is heather. i gauge swatch lazily.

i did okay and fudged the numbers with the honeymoon cami. it came out pretty much as written, but not quite.

because, as you can see above, i swatch lazily.

so, here is honeymoon cami v.2. it’s about 2″ too big in the waist, and 3″ too short in the body.

when will i remember that i want a shirt to be 15″ from the underarm, and that 13″ makes me look dumpy?

hopefully soon.

(please note – the first picture? awful, but it’s too bright outside for good pictures – even the shady one is overexposed. and i’m probably going to frog this anyway and make it again in a size smaller with 2″ extra length anyway. as soon as i’m not tired of the pattern anymore.)

One response to “my name is heather. i gauge swatch lazily.

  1. I always do the exact same thing, knitting everything too short. I’m trying to train myself to keep knitting even though it looks too long, because I’m not a teenager, my gut will push everything up, up, up. Your cami does look cute though, and I don’t think it’s dumpy, at least not in the photos.
