rippit, rippit, rippit…..

December 23, 2009

Okay…..THIS is why it is so important to take time to check gauge while knitting! I made this mitten on Sunday…and now it has to be ripped out…COMPLETELY! This is a new pattern called Icewine Mittens by Emily Holbert Kellam. It calls for worsted weight yarn and size 2.75mm needles…..well, the gauge is too small, the mitten is tight so it must be ripped1 I’m going to try the new gauge on a size US3 needles and YES, I will swatch this time! boo hoo…..all that time wasted! The saddest part is…I KNOW BETTER!
