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!
