Thank you so much C.J. ! That saved the whole project!
I started having NEVER knitted and didn't read the instructions first! ~ Why aren't I surprised? Duh. :toothy:
So here is my first knitting ~ I didn't know what to put it next to for size as I wasn't sure you would know the size of our money, so I put it next to a small banana! Sorry I couldn't think of anything else off hand ROFL!
Diana is right, if you want to make them bigger, just go to the next size needles. You can even go 2 sizes up. Just be careful though, because you probably don't want them too big if they are going on cards.
Thank you Diana/C.J. ~ That would explain what happened today.
Last night I REALLY wanted to try one of these bootees to see if they would be suitable for baby cards, but I don't knit (does it notice?) So I 'found' 2 needles that I use for stirring paint LOL and some wool. This is the reason I don't cook either LOL, it doesn't matter if it's 'right' I just use what I find
Anyway today I thought I should get the 'right' things and I knitted some more in pink and blue ~ They came out HALF the size!! You would NEVER get money in them, but I was Oh my word WHAT have I done to them? They've shrunk!!!!!!
The needles are MUCH smaller
I made this little jumper too on cocktail sticks ~ I didn't 'make' it on cocktail sticks! I put it on them for the sake of the card.
So here's the difference ~ Oh and Thanks Chelle the credit card was a good idea. I never thought of that!
