Well, Sharon, I'm far from experienced enough to really give hard and fast advice, but my instincts tell me to a) use a smaller needle, b) pick up fewer stitches, and c) knit it the same length, not longer (you don't want a mock turtle or a turtle)

Good luck! It's wonderful that he's sent it to you to repair. Gack, that boy lives for danger, doesn't he?!

Vera

Belated congrats! How exciting for you and your family. I thought that was the news in your last post, but I can be a little slow on the uptake sometimes.

Chris

Ohh, I can see you getting all kinds of baby stuff while at Threadbear!

Sonja

Well, I would pick up the same number of stitches, but then decrease 10% of them on the first round. And definitely use smaller needles. Or, if it was ribbing that stretched out, a hard-wearing neckband can be made by knitting it twice as high as you want it in stockinette, then folding the cast-off edge to the inside and attaching it to the cast-on edge.

I'm gonna be a grandma too...but I can't knit for this one because it's got fur all it's own. Yeah...Katy and Mike have adopted a kitten to keep her company while Mike's in Afghanistan.

Someday I'll be posting about knitting baby stuff. Just not yet. And that's okay with me.

Congrats, Grannie Sharon! And thanks for the condolences. I'm feelin' the love...

Hugs,
Susie
