mini-madness

Still working on the mini-sweater.. I'm finding that cotton makes this a fairly heavy sweater for it's size, since I had to triple-strand it to get the right guage. I should have said "fuck the gauge"and done it all by measurements, but it being my first sweater I wasn't really comfortable with freehanding all the increases and such. Also in a smaller guage it would have knit up as a finer, but stiffer fabric, and I like how soft it is, even if it is heavy.
I had to frog back a bunch of rows because I increased too much for the sleeves (tried it on with a larger shirt underneath, bad idea).
I've gotten so that I don't drop stitches when I frog anymore, but it's still a royal pain in the ass getting the stitches back on the needles :(
I should have this thing finished by the end of the week though, yay! AND I should have enough of the green stuff left over to make a light summery scarf :) I saw one at a department store the other day that was crocheted in lovers-knot with sequins that was really gorgeous, and would be fairly easy, so I may try that.
