Two steps forward, one step back ....

Pia has had a bit of a setback.

Yesterday I had reached the armhole shaping when I stopped and looked long and hard at it - it seemed really very roomy indeed. I went and had a look around on Ravelry, and discovered that the unexpected roominess of this pattern has been noted by several people, and the general advice seemed to be - if in doubt, size down.

So I frogged, and started again.

I am now almost up to the armholes again. This time I am making the medium size, not the large, and I do think it is going to be ok. The pattern with the columns of eyelets makes a very stretchy fabric, you see.

And now I have to focus for a little while on the pretty knitting that I cannot show you just yet.....
