I Love Wool

I've been knitting along on Starsky, and a back, two fronts and two sleeves later I realised that my gauge was off. I knew my row gauge had been off but I dismissed it because I knew I could work with that. Except now I found that for every four inches I had 1.5 extra sts between the markers defining 4 inches across. If I had knit this sweater in anything else in my stash, I would have been forced to rip it all out. And then I realized I could just block it. And viola! I now have perfectly sized sweater pieces drying on my floor.

Now, I'm going to sign of and decide whether to go to sleep or be the first person at my polling place tomorrow morning.
