Being careful not to twist...

Ok, this is basic knitting knowledge...yet when I cast on again for grumps t-shirt (sizing issues), I twisted my stitches. So frustrating after I carefully cast on all of those stitches with a crochet hook so I have this nice edge. You see, I thought I was so smart trying to do the magic loop thing with my addis to avoid using the bamboo smaller length circs. Whatever! So, unable to save my cast on, I cast on again, using the bamboo. All turned out fine...the tension is dead on. I am on my way again.

As you can also see, I am in need of manicure...I will add it to the list!

Looks pretty good! The increases aren't as "perfect" as if you increased every other row, but that would give you straps which are far too wide. I think it's looking pretty good, and you will be *much* happier with the smaller fit. I wish you lived closer, I'd just make you try on my Tivoli and see how it fits :)

All that counts is that you're happy with it in the end. I wish I'd used that crochet cast-on method...it's gonna look great!
