Grumps Tshirt

I've got grumperina's t-shirt on the needles! I love the "Shine" yarn for this t shirt...it feels so soft.
A little progress shot...

My gauge is on...except for the first few rounds that I did on shorter circs. I wonder if I naturally knit looser on smaller rounds? It is bothering me a little...we will see once I get to the dart starts. I will try it on and rip if I have to...but I think it will be ok. I chose the crochet hook cast on I was taught at a poncho making class last year...it is from Sally Mellville's book. It made a nice cast on finished edge, and it will match the cast off edge at the bottom of the t shirt.


Happy 40th Catherine!

Hi, listen, I'm pretty new on this blogosphere and Internet thing, so I don't know if there's a sort of "subscription" method that I can use viagra in order to receive notifications of your new entries...? Thing is I enjoy reading your blog a lot and I'd like to be up to date with your posts!
