It was a dark and stormy night

Okay, not really. But it was an overcast and gloomy day and a long, miserable knitting week. I had hoped to be working merrily along on the sleeves by now and well, I'm obviously not.
Remember those size 10's I was thrilled to finally get gauge on. Yeah, well gauge in stocking net is one thing. Gauge in garter is a different beast all together. Now I realize while the Tree Jacket is supposed to be a loose fitting garment, I can't imagine it was meant to be so loose your armpits ended up somewhere around the bottom of your bra. Not very flattering and you can see where this is going, Right? Froggy came a courting and you are now looking at Tree Jacket ~ take 2. This time around I'm using the recommended 8's. It seems a little loosey goosey, but I'm gonna stick it out and pray it works. I wonder if this is that nasty knitting karma biting me in the ass for neglecting Fifi?
Halloween is just around the corner. Go ahead and take a big hand full of these yummy goodies. Delicious, full of fiber and you won't need a dentist appointment if you overindulge. Boo!

Oh my gosh! All that yarns looks so lovely.

I am still so excited to see the final product. I love this sweater so much! If I wasn't leaving for Mexico to get married in a week, I seriously would start on it.

(even with all the ufo's looming).

Oh man, pass that bowl over here!

I must warn you-I am totally one of those kids that take a HUGE handful of all the good stuff and leave nothin for the other kids...

That tree jacket is going to look awesome on you, I can already tell. ;) Frog we must, frog we will.

Ooooh, I wish I was trick-or-treating at your house!

It looks like you had a row gauge issue, actually, more so than a stitch gauge problem, as the sweater is too long rather than looking too wide really. Can't wait to see the final version! I am still slogging through the first sleeve on mine.
