I'm doing something wrong - help??
I have been knitting for as long as I can remember. I enjoy knitting fairisle sweaters (Nordic Knits) on circular needles (I panic when I have to sew in a sleeve!)
I have very nice tension (or so I'm told), this isn't the problem. The problem is that I have yet to make a sweater that is actually the size I am knitting. They always end up being much smaller. This is very disheartening as there is quite a lot of work put into these projects.
I was told to go down a size or 2 in the needles I use.
To be perfectly honest when I do a swatch for sizing it doesn't matter what size needles I use, I seem to get the same dimensions in the end. What's wrong with me? Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I am so limited as to where to go for help where I live.
Any suggestions would be most helpful!
