the "no-swatch demon" got me again. 3XChic is too small--at least for its intended recipient (mom). ok. so i didn't swatch. but i did check my gauge, and it was spot on. i made the smallest size. figuring the finished measurement is 40", surely it will fit. HA! too small. but the homespun feels just lovely, and now i want a homespun sweater. at least i have another unfinished sweater that is for mom. lol. and that one i swatched, so it had better fit!
