I had a long talk with the cotton sweater with high hopes
but niggling doubts kept me from enjoying it.
The needles the pattern called for are too small for the yarn (worsted weight)
and the fabric is too dense and stiff.
Strike two is the bane of all 'knit in the round' ribbings-it slants and that drives me crazy.
So I ripped it all out.
And caked the yarn back up for another attempt!
I thought I would try a top down sweater;
the yarn works up better in a bigger needle
but I didn't really want a t-shirt again.
So I stopped here and ripped it back, too.
What I would like is another cotton tank like this one.
So I pulled out my old (1998 purchase) Sweater Wizard software
and loaded the measurements and gauge into the slots
and now I have what I want
and I know it will work!
Now I have a K3P1 ribbed tank on the needles and it is custom designed just for me!
No guess work or doubts to haunt me now on the pretty sunflower yarn!
