I'm Not So Sure
I am not a 100% sold on the corn stitch at the bottom of the Guernsey. I may have put too many rows in between the stitch. I may end up pulling it back out after a few inches. I'm going to knit another row and then see how I like it.
I'm still knitting on a 24 inch needle, but I have jumped up to a size 4. I tried a 2 and a 3 and both are getting me about 6 stitches to the inch. I really want to be more like 5 3/4 stitches to the inch. Funny, how you can swatch on a 16 inch needle and get a different gauge then when you knit an actual size garment sometimes. And then again, it could be that the stitches are so tight on the 24 inch needle that it makes for even a tighter gauge.
