Wednesday Wacky-ness

I am a woman obsessed. I think that the people who know me know this about me. And - well - I am not ashamed of this. It is a mere fact about me.

I am working on my Blue Tomato and I'm really curious about how it will turn out, so I have been staying up WAAAAY too late knitting and watching silly tv shows. Right now I am putting a looong piece of "scrap" yarn into the bottom loops so I can try it on...I have some real concerns about the way that the gauge lied to me and therefore making the scoop neck look like it's going to be a little more scoopy than I would prefer. I'll let you know.

Ho-ly Cow. Let me tell you that my stitch length does not fit the gauge but the width does. I will now rip out and re work this pattern. I think I will now need to call it my Blueberry Sweater. It may resemble that tomato (which I still want to make with the recommended yarn next time), but methinks it will not be quite the same.

  1. Me thinks that blue berry vs tomato is funny, as they are both short squatty fruits....

    I understand about the low scoop. I want to make it too, but not until I rework the scoop and add some fitting so it looks better on my body type....

    I can't wait to see it....
