Give it a Try

 I am trying to make a summer tank on the knitting machine;
a maiden voyage! 
 After a few false start, it moved right along-even with decreases happening for waist shaping!
I made a swatch first-no skipping this step when you are working on the knitting machine!
After a ton of counting, and averaging, I found my gauge. 
And then the work began!  
The math wasn't hard but there was a lot to think about!
I hope I have all the bugs worked out for this but if not,
 it is pretty easy to rip out and try again.
I am going to conquer this!

  6. That looks like a lot of work. I am sure that all that planning and math will pay off in the end. I need to take a page out of that book! I tend to just start knitting.
