I enjoy knitting, did a lot of hats for the homeless before Christmas and also did the shoe box knitting. But when I try to knit something for myself it always ends up soooo big. Just tried to knit a top for 38" chest in DK on size 8 needles and it ended up being 49 and a half inches wide!!! The knitting doesn't look slack or big but don't understand why everything ends up so wide and then I end up unpicking it and getting very fed up with it all. At the point of giving up to be honest, this should be relaxing and it is stressing me! Any ideas ladies?
