All is not perfectly rosy here in crochet land. I am working on my crochet sweater/vest/what ever it is going to turn out to be project. And after really, and I mean really looking at the pattern I have decided I have a bit of a counting issue. You see I was crocheting away thinking I had 112 squares total to make. After much deliberation I decide to make the back a bit larger so that added 8 squares, 120 total. Great!
I have 40 completed squares so I am good to go, right? Hmm......something still seems a bit off. Actually I think I am a bit off as I was not calculating for my size at all. I am not petite, actually I am quite tall. And even if I am not big chested I have broad shoulders. Time for more calculations I think.
Lets take a second to gaze at the beautiful tulips on my table because I think my blood pressure is about to seriously rise.
The back should have 45 squares, and each side 54 which is a whopping total of 153. 153!!!!! That is a big difference from 120, really what was I thinking?
Let's all take a deep breath, and maybe a few more.
The question is do I have enough yarn? Remember I have had to double the yarn to get the right gauge...... This will either be a brilliant project or a colossal waste of time. I guess we will see what happens.
By the way Max and I are totally safe from Mr or Mrs Alligator, you don't need to worry. I would never let Max be the alligator's lunch.
I will be at my son's swim meet this weekend so no blogging for me. If you have some spare positive thoughts, could you send them his way? Thanks, and I hope you all have a safe and beautiful weekend.
