I'm working on the cropped jacket from the Summer Knit 1 and I can*not* get the gauge right! On size 8s, 18 stitches by 24 rows (stockinette) should be 4". Mine was 3". Sooo I decided to see if they would work as the smaller needles. 24 stitches by 30 rows of k3, p3 rib (which the pattern has done on 6s, but I did on 8s) should be 4", and mine is just under. ::sigh:: I now have to go get some new needles. Do you all think 9s and 11s should do it?
