I live in Puerto Rico and there are no stores here that sell suitable yarn and since I've nothing suitable for an afghan in my stash, I had to do the mail-order thing. I've been itchin to do an afghan and what better way than to do it in a mystery-type setting.

Once you have 55 stitches you knit the WS (you know how it said repeat the 2 rows? You do the increase and then you just knit). Then you add the 2nd color on the RS.
Yes we are making 8 squares total for week 1.

So .... my question : we prepared 3 balls ... and, for me, I've used more than 2 (equivalent, because not the same yarn, but I used the conversion with the yardage), nearly 2 and 1/3
And you ???

But it ended up being almost an inch too big! (My knitting has never been too loose before. And, honestly, I still don't think it is.) So I thought, "Ok. I'll use a size 7 needle and knit another square." But guess what!? It's a half inch too big! I'm not sure what to do. If I go down to a size 6 needle, then I've wasted my time on 2 squares. I know I can rip them out and reuse the yarn. But... Is the square too big because it's garter stitch? Should I use the squares if they end up being 10"? I don't want to run out of yarn because I'm afraid it'd be too hard to find more yarn in the same dye lot. So would I be better off to go down to a size 6 needle to see what size I get? Has anyone else gotten 9.5" squares with a size 8 needle? Just curious.
