Well, I haven't posted because I've been disgusted with my knitting self. I was trying to zoom through a pair of longies... at the same time my tape measure went missing. You see this is not going to a good place right? Yeah... MAJOR gauge issues. I kept wondering why I was using SO MUCH yarn... UGH! So I'd gotten about an inch into the legs... found my tape measure and realized... they weren't even close. They were HUMONGOUS. Riiiiiiipppppp! I had to start over. Disgusted with myself. Two lessons learned. First, ALWAYS do a gauge swatch - even for commercially produced yarns as they are NOT the same the next time you knit them. Second, look for your tape measure as soon as it goes missing.

So, I'm terribly behind... getting frustrated because there is no way I'm going to get my Christmas knitting done too. So... have to find a few more Christmas gifts. I guess I'll knit the gifts next summer and give them next year or something...

On a happy note I'm working on a quick little hat for a friend who had a baby recently. Super cute! Pic's when it's done I promise!

what a bummer about the gauge!!! You should head to wal-mart and grab a bunch of their $.88 measure tapes. I lose ours crazy fast so that's the only way I can keep any here.

Can't wait to see pics of the hat!
