Yes, Porkins, I know, to destroy the death star I must stay on target. But I must confess, 2012 saw me un-doing projects as much as I began them. I started two sweaters – ambitious projects, I realize – but even after making some serious progress, I realized that I’d done one of the following:
– picked the wrong yarn
– picked the wrong needle size
– picked the wrong pattern/lost interest/didn’t care
Points 1 & 2 could have been helped by checking gauge. But isn’t that for weenies? I’ve made some great stuff by winging it, but I guess when you’re making the jump from super bulky accessories to finer yarn making things that you’d actually wear, you must also check gauge. I’m all growns up.
This example to the left is an example of all three (yarn, needle, pattern) being wrong, and potentially the movie I’m watching the in background. Is that the Exorcist?
No, no, no. None of these are working. Help me say it right, Consuela:
