OK, I am a math teacher, for crying out loud, you think I could cast on the right number of stitches.
So I was out to dinner the other night (we were coming home form camping) and this gal walked by in a very snappy tank top. It was tight at the hip, then a bit blousy. A few rows of lace at the top. Hers was a jersey knit, but I think it will translate well. I figured this would be nice and cool.
So I have been busy casting on what I thought was 342 stitches. And doing 3 inches of 1x1 ribbing.
And it was looking a bit small, but I just kept going. Then I counted. 180 stitches. My hips cannot be circles by a mere 180 stitches.
So, rip, goodbye eggplant ribbing. This was using the tubular cast on.
Deep sigh. Progress shot later. I have some counting to do.
