finished is good

I have my housemate's scarf being blocked this week and I'm about three rows away from having MY scarf done. Just in time for the 57 degree day we are having today in the mile high city. Like it won't be back down to freezing in a few days.
The project for me is done on US 9 with a cotton thin / thick called Inca Cotton. I got the yarn in Avon Village Ohio when I was there for the holidaze. I used the Seaman's scarf pattern that I knitted up for one of my neices. Basically seed stitch for about 8 - 9" then k2 p2 ribbing for around 35" and baack to seed sticth to finish it.
Next is a cardigan vest from Cascade 220 Heather - BUT - I'm having a hell of a time with the gauge, I'm about 4 1/2 to the inch on the US 7 they suggest, then I'm at 7 to the inch when I drop down to US 6. Gauge is 5 to the inch. I'm thinking that I should use the US 7 and maybe try to tighten up a scoch. Any suggestions?


Hey Greenman, sounds like you have a lot going on! I started a sweater using Cascade 220 about 2 weeks ago and got up to the underarm and discovered guage was off so much that there was no hope it would fit! :( Needless to say I tore the whole thing out. Now I am trying to figure out what to do with the yarn. BTW, I live in Westlake, OH right down the road a piece. If you get this way again give me a call we could meet if you would like.
