knit knit knit purl purl purl bind off cast on yo wrap etc

so since the last entry, i've made half of an elongated stitch scarf out of the patons pixie i bought, finished the erte hat, recieved the yarn for chris' sweater, and tried to get my gauge swatch. i might have mentioned that i'm making chris the leo pattern from the gauge for leo is 26st/32 rows over a 3x5 rib pattern (24st/32 rows stockinette) on size 4 needles. the gauge listed on the balls of jaeger trinity i got is 22st/30 rows on size 6. apparently i knit pretty tightly with this yarn because it looks like i am getting the gauge finally on size 6 (haha, actually, its not a suprise that i knit tight). i also need to loosen the bind off on the erte hat, block it, and make more flowers to go on the side.
