Gauge sucks!! Doing swatches sucks...but other than that knitting rocks!! I am knitting a block for a gift afghan. I doubt it if she reads my blog so not to worry. First off and not my fault, I was given directions to knit a 5x5 block. Now in reality I never jump in and start something when the due date is a week away...au contraire. I wait till it's the night before and then panic and complain about doing it and on and on. To my credit, I am a changed woman....I started this project almost immediately so as not to forget. I got my guage because 5x5 you know...not 6x 5.5 or any other number. I have heard many a time about how the poor knitter that gets stuck, I mean has the pleasure of knitting all of those squares together, has a tough time making them all fit. So I get guage, I actually get guage!! To all my friends, I did make a swatch....honest. I only had to rip twice...I am on a roll...and then I get a rude awakening!!! They changed the block size on me, that's right!!! Because of my haste to finish something, I screwed myself....Did anyone plan on telling me??? Hey ERIN!!! Fondue Pot!!!!! Rule number one...screw gauge!!!
