HOW little bit bigger is it? Remember that if it's even just a tiny bit bigger over the gauge for an inch, you could end up with massive amounts of bigger! Especially if you're already knitting a size up. Don't be afraid to frog back and start again if you decide it's too big. Really. I'm the queen of frogging and starting again, and it's really better to end up with a garment that you actually want to wear that really does fit!

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.
