Did somebody mention a tension square?????

No they didn't!!!!!!!! and nor did I have the common sense to do one!

here is my current Wip so far! I love the colour, I love the design, but its a little "snugger" than I anticipated! Not that its a massive problem cos it DOES fit, but I think my tension must be out as I'm sure its smaller than it should be?? I was planning to make my mum one but have put myself off now as I can't really get her to try it on as I go:-O HMmmmmmmm!!!!! that'll teach me won't it! (actually, it probably won't, but at this point I'm going to pretend the experience has taught me a valuable lesson)

oooh I hope that isn't my fault!!! - I have to say mine is snug too - but I like it! - I thought the point of knitting it down was that you could try it on on the way??????

I tried it on after I had done the yoke and it was fine, its just snug over my boobs!!!!!!! It'll be fine:-) I think it will be fine once the zip is sewn in, its hard to see really till I do that????

I think it'll be fine when it's got a zip in, and you could try blocking it a bit proud! (i.e. stretch it a bit!!!!) I guess 'cos mine's a jumper I didn't mind the snuggness, but it didn't occur to me to mention it in the case of the cardi - Oops!

NO its fine auntie noo!!!!! I like things on the snug side too, I'm just not used to them coming out like that because I'm quite small iyswim?? I meant I couldn't get mum to try it on as I knitted because I had hoped to do it as a pressie! It took me ages to work out what you meant about trying on as you go........Doh!!!!!
