Sometimes I fail.

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.

  1. 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… πŸ™‚

  2. 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! πŸ™‚
