...by the beast that calls itself knitting.
'memba that only last Wednesday I proudly showed off how my knitted cardigan was coming along?
Uhm, yeah - oddly enough what I feared most, the seaming, was not so bad after all but the fit of the garment was atrocious.
Maybe it is time that I do a gauge swatch after all?
I followed the instructions on the pattern to the latter but the cardigan was too big and the arms waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long.
So, I guess gauge is important.
This is how my cardigan looks now - and I haven't even dared to tell Mr P yet as he will only do this annoying tutting sound and the all-knowing-rolling-of-the-eye-thing
If I ever manage to complete the new cardigan I have in mind (gauge swatch and all), I will proudly show it to Mr P and he would not know the difference :)
Oh well, I guess it's back to the drawing board (which incidentally is packed with tons of unravelled yarn waiting for its next adventure...)
I wonder how many time you can unravel yarn before it becomes brittle and breaks?
If anyone can find out, it's gonna be me!
