Hehe...I do exactly the same thing. The only time I remember to
check things on Ravelry is when someone else mentions it. Good
thing there are people who actually use it for what it's meant to be
used so the lazy people like me can stop in occasionally and
I've found an interesting "problem" with starting my Rogue. This is
the first sweater I'm making for myself so I got out the tape
measure to accurately figure out what size to knit. Seems my
bottom half needs a larger size than my top half. sigh There it is
in black in white, I have a large posterior...all this time I've been
living in denial!
I'm not sure if I should knit with larger needles for the hip area to
make the larger size or cast on more stitches and then reduce once I
get past the hips ...guess I better go over to the how-to section
and ask some seasoned sweater knitters for opinions!
