You're right about stress being no good!

I'm keeping it fairly simple, except the mittens I made for my mum. They're not exactly the same size ... whoops!

P.P.S. holes between stitches are not always a problem. (Think of lace, it's all holes! :D)

It's more important to have even tension (i.e. that your gauge remains constant throughout a piece), than...

Stitch/Row gauge

When I knit up a swatch to check gauge, I find I have a problem. My row gauge is ALWAYS off. When I have the correct number of stitches in 4", I have far fewer rows. For example, the gauge on a...

brilliant! I was wracking my brain for something round-ish of vaguely the right size. I had thought of using the small coffee tin, but it's metal and could have rusted.

blocking ... in the round?

I've recently knit a hat in the round, i.e. no seeming involved (whoo!). There's a lovely lace pattern in it, and I'd like to pin the lace while blocking to open it up. I'm not sure how to...
