mistake #1 I didn't have size 5mm circulars so I used 5.5mm!
mistake #2 the yarn choice if you can call this crap yarn, it wasn't a bargain at .33 cents it was uneven the colour was faded in parts,the twist was off thick in parts and so thin in others way too many knots throughout the ball. Last night while I was knitting I came across 4 knots in a 63"length. Working with this yarn was just plain frustrating!
mistake #3 the size I chose to make was size Large, but in combination with the wrong sized needles, it was working out to be a size XL,! So I came to the realization that it just wasn't working out for me, so I ripped the entire thing out. If I'm going to take the time to make this beautiful sweater, then I'm going to want to wear it right?
I put the pattern away and will be on the lookout for just the right yarn that will be worthy of this pattern!
