How is this possible?
I'm working on a very easy drapey vest in Tahki Ripple. The yarn does all the work and it's awesome. I love this yarn. When I sat down to knit this morning, the piece measured about 31". I needed to reach 32" before the next phase of the vest.
I put in a stitch marker and knit what I thought would be 1" more. I laid it out, measured and lo and behold it was still 31". Seriously? How is this possible?
I knit some more, so now about 3" for the 1" I needed to continue and yes, it STILL measured 31". It boggles my mind. I know this happens to other people and it's happened to me before. It still is a mystery.
So, I'll keep knitting 1" more to reach the 32" until I actually reach 32". Then, watch, it will measure 36". You'll hear my scream if that happens.
