120% sweater

So… I was so excited to start a new sweater for Lil’E, hopefully one she’ll like and wear! Her favourite colour is currently “lellow” so I’m feeling confident 🙂

But. My gauge is SO WRONG. I’m experimenting by just increasing all measurements and instructions by 20% as I just CANNOT be arsed to buy a different load of yellow yarn. This may have been influenced by the fact that I cast on as my relaxation in my hotel room after a really long day on a work trip. It was supposed to be perfect! Instead it was infuriating and disappointing but I would not let the knitting win!!! Have never tried this approach before and am a bit scared the end result will be a misproportioned monster…

Managed to fit in a few rows on the flight home, quietly confident it will be ok…
