One Skein Wonder - Complete!


Image hosted by Photobucket.com
All done!! phewwww! Thought I wouldn't have enough yarn then someone said oh no you have to rip out 6 rows it'll be huge! I did finished it off. Got it on but needed DH to drag it off me with my arms bent in back!  I tried her's on and she said it fit perfect so I was the same size.. hmm I think it's because her's was in cotton and mine's in merino which the cotton has more stretch then wool for sure.  My 5 y/o Katie really likes it and wants one in pink same size arms are a bit big but it's like a short sweater on her.... should I frog it and make it fingerless gloves or what to do...... I wonder wonder wonder what why?



FYI:  One skein wonder takes more then a skein of snobbie yarn this was 2 of Debbie Bliss with scraps leftover to tie some handspun with.

I have to do a funny wriggle to get out of my OSW's. I like them though as they give you that little bit extra when it gets cooler. Could you maybe shrink yours a little to see if it fits your daughter? Mind you that's easier said than done. I either shrink things big time or not at all!

I had the same problem with my 2nd OSW but I loved the yarn so much and wasn't sure what else I was going to do with it that I'm just hoping that when I lose weight it will fit! My 1st OSW fits fine.

As someone else commented, maybe your daughter will fit into it (well, she will eventually ;) ) if you shrink it?
