Extreme Knitting Part 3
Knitting was a piece of cake with my new ginormous needles and uber-thick fabric/yarn. Purling took a while to get used to.
At first I cast on a needles worth of stitches only to discover that would have made a VERY large something or other. I pulled it all off and cast on only 13 stitches. It seems the gauge is an impossible sounding 1 stitch=1 inch. The resulting fabric is rather stiff however. I am wondering, since I still have half a bolt left to cut, if I should make the polyester into smaller strips for my next try.
