Little brain, little brain, let me come in!
Not by the hair of my human's little chin!

I have no idea why that popped up, my brain has gone a bit feral in this weather.


We've had a day of high winds here in Victoria. Getting up to 100k at the airport, not so far from here. TBH, I don't really know at what speed a gust of wind is declared to be fast, but subjectively speaking, holy crap it's really windy. It's been wake-up-because-everything's rattling-but-stay-put-under-the-doona level of windy.


Today's challenge is to work out how to adapt a cardigan pattern to my own measurements. I'm using an online tool where you plug in your own measurements and then buy the adjusted pattern A great idea! But it's not working for me, so I'm emailing back and forth with the lovely and very helpful creator, and we are trying to work out what's going wrong.

Trouble is, I'm not sure I'm thinking clearly enough to *not* be making silly errors. Or possibly the program has limits.

I'd really like to get to this next level of knitting, but my sizing issues are damned complicated, so I can't do it until I've learned to adjust patterns like a bloody genius. I'm not any of the standard shapes, even adjusting for size. In fact, I suspect the most realistic description of my shape is "short, petite frame, heavily pregnant, with extra large boobs as well".

But if I can sort this out, and knock out a couple of basic things, I'll be very pleased and can then maybe start playing with more elaborate patterns. Or, quite possibly, just trundle along being able to make basics that fit the way I want things to fit.

Okay, I'm off to wave my measuring tape around.

My own brain goes on holiday sometimes and errors I make which should be glaringly apparent just aren't. I hope you work it out!
