knitting help  
I know when you check your tension/gauge you use bigger needles if you've too many stitches/rows in the measurements given, and smaller needles if you've too few. What do you do if you've the right amount or slightly too many stitches, but not enough rows?

The interbets was letting me down until you replied!

So... I've too few rows per inch, so I should leave out rows. Ok, I think I can manage that.

I've started some mittens. It's the time of year for it, isn't it? :-) I haven't blocked the swatch either. I suppose I should. :-P

My tension was out in another pattern too, but it did give length measurements, rather than row, so it was ok. Plus I hadn't actually done a tension swatch before starting anyway, just measured partway through. That one was a baby hoodie. I plan on finding a baby to fit it when it's done. I need to sew stuff together though, which I keep putting off.

I'm also doing YAS - Yet Another Scarf.
