Joining in

Hi, I've been lurking and reading for a while. Thought i would join in. No pics right now. I am on the last purl round of the lace right before the BO. I am using Cotton Ease in the charcoal color and doing the smallest size on size 4's. I did my own mods also for the same reasons as all ya'll. Thanks for all the info. I have been doing mine on two circulars=got tired of threading waste yarn through to try it on. I THOUGHT I was okay on the size and did try it on as I went but it seems bigger around than what I would like but I can live with it. I spread my increases out too far I think. This cotton ease seems heavy now with all this length. I think I MIGHT do another in the real denim ecru and be more careful in my increases. Love how those have turned out. I will post a pic if I can get a decent one.

hmmm i suspect it's bigger and thicker and heavier because cotton ease knits up 17 stitches to 4 inches, where the pattern calls for 21 stitches per 4 inches. when calculated it equals a difference of up to 7 inches, yow! how many inches did yours turn out to be in the waist?
