Dear Knitting Designers:
If I'm supposed to base my project size on my high-hip measurement, please say that in the pattern. Otherwise, I will take the term "hip measurement" to mean the fullest part of the hips, because that's what it means, and I will knit the wrong size.
And, who gets 5 stitches per inch on Cascade Pima Tencel? I'm getting 6.25" stitches per inch. Who measures this stuff, anyway?
This is why, after one failed sweater attempt, I do not crochet sweaters. Measure the gauge? Measure parts of my body? Forget it, I'm going to Sears!
