Yin and Yang

In my relatively short knitting career, I have to come to find, for every failure there is a success. For every tear shed, a cry of joy. One cannot exist with out the other. It's quite the test of emotion. On the yin of this circle may I present Something Green. This is the 3rd garment I have attempted with this yarn and the 3rd disappointment. I give up. The pattern is fantastic. I have seen so many finished objects that fit. Mine is not one of those. The sleeves are huge. Enormous.

I'll probably frog it. Let's face it, I won't wear it. There's just SO much extra fabric. It's just not flattering. Wah. I'll be sulking over this for a while.
Pattern: Something Red by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Worsted

On the yang side, I finally finished Branching Out. It's blocking on towels in my daughter's bedroom. I am so excited to finish this one. It's been in the works for a LOOOONG time. I'm talking years. Here's a blocking photo for now. Tomorrow I will proudly post a modeled shot.

So very sorry about "Something Green" :( Poor girl! Well, you are certainly right - now that you've gotten your "ugh" out of the way, you are due for a "hooray" instead :)
