I want a tee that is not too short, but not tunic length. I don’t like sleeveless tops or low necks. I like raglans and circular yokes, but have gotten bored of making them. I now want to knit a proper set in sleeve tee. Something with no ease or a bit of positive ease that can be worn all the time. Not lacy, since I do not want to have to wear a tank top underneath it to avoid flashing people.
Yarn label gauge: 4.5 st to 1 in on size 7 needles
Never mind Ms. Zimmermann.

I can’t do it. I’m tired of math. Sometimes you just want to be told what to do so you can start knitting. The planning that EZ and BW do take DAYS and MATH and MEASUREMENT. Right now UGH to that.

My gauge on size 7 needles: 4 st to 1 in. It’s still see through.
Back to the drawing board.
