Today I am:

6 November 2011

Sisyphus.

I cast on for my curent project on Thursday. Friday evening and Saturday I chugged along, getting a handle on the four different stitch patterns as I went. Today, after a couple more hours of knitting, I had 4 inches of the bodice completed — enough that I could transfer the knitting to scrap yarn and try it on. Just to get a sense of how things were coming together.

Wellllllll, despite knitting a gauge swatch, it seems that the bodice as knit from the measurements I have is way too big.

So I will un-knit (frog) the 7,000 stitches I’ve spent the last few days knitting, and begin again.

    That’s awful, I’m so sorry. I suppose the only consolation is that you have just done the first four inches.

      That was exactly my thought, Z. Especially since this has dragonscale and bamboo patterns, not just stocking stitch. I would much rather frog 4 inches than 16 inches! (At that point, I would probably just cry and give up.)
