So much for blocking. My gauge really WAS off, unblockably so. It wasn’t hugely off, but by the time you factored it out across the whole sweater….too big! Even though I did a large swatch with the same needles. Go figure. Anyway, it’s in the process of being ripped right now. The good thing is that now it needs slightly fewer stitches per inch, so my small fear that I would not have quite enough dark green is alleviated considerably.
