I've just finished my second project, a hat that was supposed to fit my partner but ended up fitting my daughter.
I'm Happy to be here and am looking forward to posting some pics soon.
Welcome to MWK! I have problems with things being too big even when I do a swatch. The more I knit the better I get at figuring these things out. Gosh, at least the hat fit someone.
Welcome to MWK, looking forward to hearing/seeing more from you.
Welcome, looking forward to seeing pics soon. I agree that while taking the time to make a swatch can seem tedious, it will save time in the end by knowing how many stitches you are actually knitting. Swatching was something I hated doing at first and it eventually became part of my routine. Good luck!
One thing i might suggest at this point is that you go for it and actually knit your gauge swatch before beginning a project. Sounds like you might knit tight and need to adjust you needle size.
Welcome to MWK, I'm sure you'll find it a supportive, informative and entertaining group.
