I went up to sevens, then to eights (in photo). It's still too dense; moving the needles requires herculean strength. At this point I realized the pattern isn't viable with this particular yarn. And, it's way too hot here. The project is now officially shelved.
My inner critter keeps telling me to remember that if it's not fun, I shouldn't be knitting it.
|Jolly good, wouldn't you say?|
