  2. Pretty color yarn! Frogging is something I do way too often. I'm sure it will be perfect the second time around.

  4. I know the feeling; I've ripped out the button band on my sweater three times today.

    I love that buttery color. I'm sure it will be a winner once you get going.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. OOooooo! I'll take one in a small. I'd love it in Citron Green/Brown. =) SO cute...makes me want to take up advanced knitting. SOmeday. In the meantime, I think I should work on my sewing skills and try my hand at that adorable twirly skirt. Very cute!
    Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. BTW,my hubby just got my girls a tiny pink golf bag and matching shoes. SO sweet. I figured you'd like that. Also, June 8th, there is a big event at his course called the Fallen Heroes tournament. It's turning into a great event with the money being raised for children of fallen service personnel. The PGA president and CBS are gonna be there...lots of great sponsors too. Tell your hubby to watch for a segment during the PGA CHampionship in August. Just thought I'd share that too. =)

  9. Oh no! BUt it's better to start over now than to go further and find out that it doesn't fit. The colour is gorgeous!

  10. Aww nuts! On the bright side, it is a beautiful yarn. Good luck with the re-do.

  11. Don't you hate that! Mind you it must be small as you don't look all that big. It looks like a lovely colour - does it go with your new gorgeous twirly skirt??

  12. Oh nooo! I'm so sorry, Leslie! But then again, there's no use in continuing to work on something - or keeping it - if it doesn't fit - there's certainly some better use for this beautiful yarn!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  16. Well, at least it wasn't a full length dress of some sort. Once you get past where you were when you had to rip back, the frogging will be a distant memory. You can do it! And it will be lovely. :)

  17. Consider the ripping as an opportunity to really take time and LOVE the project! The color is fabulous.

  18. Oh no! Gauge problem? I've had yarn for this pattern for a couple weeks, but I'm trying to get another project off the needles first. Now I'm wishing I saw your first because (like everyone else) I LOVE that color!
