I do hope you're having a lovely day with wonderful weather like we are enjoying.
Spring is in full swing over my way and I'm loving it.
I thought I'd drop by with a quick update on my knitting, which you may remember from back here. It didn't get off to a very smooth start, but it wasn't long before it was progressing marvelously and I was in love.
Capital L in L♥VE.
I'd even made it past the sleeves and into the body.
The end was in sight....
But then.....I tried it on.
Only to find......there was a problem.
And it quickly went from this (only I had knitted about a thousand more rows since this photo).....
as it was ENORMOUS!!!!
Big enough for my entire family to wear at the same time!
Ok so maybe not that big, but seriously big.
Three options crossed back and forth across my mind before the great unravelling commenced:
a/ I could do some SERIOUS eating.
b/ Shrink it in the washing machine - yes this was given MUCH consideration.
c/ Frog it and start this pattern over.
I choose "None of the Above" and opted for a crochet cardigan.
There were no tears, swearing or feet stomping.
I just got on with it and remember why crochet truly is my first love - so easy to rip out a few stitches. much easier to figure out gage.
I am resigned to the fact that knitting just isn't worth the snot and tears it produces for me!
