Revisiting the WIP’s

I did a little knitting on mom’s sweater today. I am having the hardest time measuring it. The combination of ribbing plus the nature of the cotton I’m using amounts to a lot of give. I can easily get the measurement I’m going for. I can also easily make it a lot bigger AS WELL AS a lot smaller than I’m going for. This is disconcerting. I am really glad that I am making the smallest size, and I think that instead of waiting for my mom to make a duct tape mannequin of herself and shipping it up to me, I’m going to forge ahead into realms unknown. My biggest concern is the size of the armhole. Here’s hoping.
