Hmmm... Perhaps I Should Learn to Measure
Last night I settled down to begin work on my next pattern idea. I came up with my general design, game plan, knit a few test cables, and measured the item my pattern is intended to fit (cryptic, I know...but it's a birthday gift for a friend who occasionally reads this and I don't want her to know!). I was SURE it was going to fit... and after working on it for over 3 hours I finished it and triumphantly tried to fit it to the object... only to find out it was about an inch and a half too small. So I looked at my pretty design, took a deep breath, and frogged the entire thing. This means I can make the second attempt bigger (har har), better, and with an extra row of cables.
