I know this board is kind of slow, but I thought I'd start here since my LYS is closed Sun/Mon. lol!
Anyways, I am beginning a sweater for my niece, and was knitting a guage swatch last night. It turned out big on the recommended size 9 needles, so I switched to size 7 needles, and it was still the same. Then I went to 5's, and it was still the same!! All 3 were 5 inches. How is that possible?? Am I doing something wrong? What?
It is a bulky wool, size 5. I have to do the ribbing on size 3 needles, in different wool, I think it's size 3 as well, any thoughts on what I should do?
I've never had this problem before, whenever I make a guage swatch it has turned out just right, and I've used the needle size the pattern calls for, so I'm kind of at a loss here.
