It finally happened.
The knitting gods decided I was getting too smug and feeling too confident.
I'm going to have to scrap my homework and start over. It's off gauge AND I messed up on the Fair Isle. I figured, hey, I can just fudge the colorwork. I was on cold meds when I did it and let the pattern get away from me..but it's just a doll sweater. So I chug on and I realize that the gauge is off AND I'm about to run out of yarn. Thbbt. I know I won't be able to get the right dye lot.
So I'm going to put what I have into the Stash box, take my lumps and learn my lessons.
- Buy more yarn than you think you'll need.
- Don't do colorwork while on cold meds.
- Make your gauge swatch at least 6x6.
I hope you have been appeased yarn gods.....
