Sick Day Knitting

I spent a lot of last week sick, so I decided to have a quiet weekend just knitting and trying to feel human again. It was pretty nice because it was the first weekend in a long time where I didn’t work, and I got a lot of knitting done.


I managed to get the body of my Penelope finished. It turned out a little longer than I expected, and I need to do some detective work to figure out why. My row gauge for this yarn was a little short, so I had done the math to modify it and add in extra rows. It could be that I had an error in my math. The other strong possibility is that my sick-gauge doesn’t match my healthy-gauge. It’s only slightly too long, so I’m going to compare it to my blocked swatch to see if my sweater will grow, and if it seems unlikely, I’m just going to leave it the way it is.

  1. I hope you are feeling better now. I was also sick these days and gave a final push to Hetty to be able to finish Penelope in time 😀

    1. I am, thank you! I hope you’re feeling better, too.

  2. Looks like it’s progressing nicely! Can’t wait to see the finished product.
