Major fail today in the knitting department. Good gravy, people, this is why you gauge! I am the queen of not gauging and hoping it all turns out well (Ok, so it’s worked on 3 sweaters for me so far, so I thought I had a good eye.. guess again.)
So, this is supposed to be a slouchy beret. But no. It turned into a skin tight beanie. An ugly one at that.
And lest you think it’s remotely slouchy in the back, I show you this.
Le sigh. Arg. So, I MAY have learned my lesson about gauge. But probably not. I rarely learn my lesson from failed knitting projects. I’ve already frogged the whole thing and cast on for another, hopefully, slouchy hat.
This is hilarious. And I’m sorry.
I love how grumpy you look to top it off.
What do you mean by “frogged?”
Oh Charissa, frogged means “ripped it all out” in knitting lingo. 🙂
Thanks for the explanation! I’ve never heard that before, and wasn’t sure if it meant pulling it out, or just throwing it away, or even something oddly related to a bullfrog… 🙂
I think it looked kinda cute! But I failed miserably on the cuff of the hat I’m working on as well. It looks nothing like it was supposed to, but oh well! 🙂
