What's up with this knitting thing? How is it that there's always a little bit of somethin' somethin' that's missing? Either it's too big or it's too small. Other times, it doesn't hang right and has enough errors to draw a crowd, or smacks you right across the face with HOMEMADE instead of handmade. Plus, I can just hear someone whisper there, behind me, to her crony: "she didn't get gauuuuge...." But you know what? I did. I did get gauge. I got gauge I got gauge, I got it got it got it! I did.
Trust me on this one friends: Gauge has only a little bit to do with true Knitting Success. I have to say, however; this Malabrigo in Velvet Grape didn't hurt it a bit. The hurting part? That was all up to me.
Let's just hope my sister's head is as small as I think it is.
And let's also hope these fingerless gloves aren't too small for Girlfriend's kindergarten teacher. They're a little tight on me and try as I might get her to shake my hand this morning so I could gauge her size, she just kept backing away, probably thinking I was going to test out some sort of new, secret handshake or that I wanted to hold her hand. Poor Girlfriend.
