I'm not sure what to do. I'm doing Glampyre's One-Skein-Wonder shrug and I'm about halfway through the body. To address #1, should I rip it all out and start again with size 9 needles? (Pattern calls for size 8). 'Course that would address #2 as well if I actually K where called for.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
You might want to put your stitches on a piece of yarn with a tapestry needle and hold the shug around you to see if it fits, anyway. If there's no chance, then you need to start over. If the part you're making doesn't look like it will fit, then frog. It's worth a try-on, though.
