frogging pain
Originally uploaded by everydayautumn.
Terrible photo, I know, especially the yarn/carpet color war going on.... I had a stupid mistake in the lace panel, twice actually, and had to frog four inches tonight. It wouldn't be so bad if this wasn't the third time I've ripped this thing back. I also discovered, when I took it off the needle, that it (this is the back) is 18 inches across, not 17 like I expected. I hate gauge.

This is the sweater from the latest issue of Rebecca that they have up as a free download on the site. I'm ready to just convince myself that four inches of ease will be fine because that's how it looks like it fits the model anyway. Stupid gauge.

You white scarf thingee is very pretty. I actually dusted Altetknits off just this week and browsed through it, realizing I'd never knit anything out of it. But I did reconsider the scarf, I just can't decide. I love scarfs, where them all the time-but I don't know if I'd fuss with that one. I'll watch yours and decide!

Sorry about the grammar,it's late.
I meant scarves. Scarfs kinda looks like barfs. Oh no! I just saw the where for wear! Saddest part--I proofed it!

Hey, I JUST saw your comments, two months later! I didn't realize that I didn't have Blogger set to email comments to me, and just thought no one was reading. So thanks! And I'll get back to that scarf sometime soon.
