Oh, what to do? What to do?


You might not know me in person, but take my word for this: the waistband on this skirt is much too large for me. I don’t know what has happened. I did check gauge well after I was into the pattern portion of the skirt, and it seemed to be right on. But when I pulled the skirt out at knit night two weeks ago, people either gasped or laughed. The waistband did not appear to be intended for me.

So between that knit night and last week’s knit night, I put an extender cord on my knit-picks interchangeable needles so that I could spread the whole skirt out.

I took it back to knit night, and there were the same gasps and laughs that there had been the previous week.

I think there is a problem.

SallyKnit had the best solution: Eat more.

And while I like that suggestion, I think I’ll go with Lucille’s: put the elastic in the waistband, put the skirt on, and see how it looks. Maybe the waistband is supposed to be that large pre-elastic.

Once I take the skirt out of time out (out of sight, out of mind is my current working philosophy) I’ll put in the elastic and see what happens.

But the out of mind stuff isn't working. The skirt is nagging at me.
