Are you using 100% acrylic yarn? Someone on here (or maybe at my LYS) told me that acrylic yarn doesn't have 'memory' like wools do, so once they strech out, they don't bounce back into shape. The pair I made for DD were acrylic and nylon, and 2 x 2 rib for the whole sock. They streched out and stayed that way....huge. I know your allergic to wool too.....Sorry I'm not much help....

GJ~I'd be happy to help knit on the shawl too if you decide to send it around

Abbily~Yay for finishing the sweater. Can't wait to see pics. I did some knitting on the Oddball Blanket #3 and now I guess it's MIA somewhere in California.
