I have a fairly loose tension, I've been told, so I think the problem comes when I'm not really paying close, awake attention as I knit a row, specifically thinking about the tension. If I'm thinking about a pattern, or anything else...I get the dreaded loop. Yet I almost always knit the last stitch tightly before turning. Is it the stitch BEFORE the last loop of the previous row that I have to think about? Aargh.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
