Karma is not my friend

I put waaaaay too much emphasis on the importance of that damn sweater. When I blocked and dried it, and put on.... it made me look like a linebacker. No amount of blocking would correct it. So, I frogged the whole thing. I shall find another project worthy of the Malabrigo. But I did learn something from this. Next time, I will do a gauge swatch.

Oh no!!! You must have been heartbroken! I don't think I could bear to frog that much - I would have found someone to gift it to

I love my friends, but I don't know if I love anyone enough (except my mother) to give them a sweater made of Malabrigo. But the sweater was too big for her too.

Good point - there are few outside of the craft that understand the awesomeness that is malabrigo.

That Malabrigo is meant for bigger and better things my love! You shall find a bit of magic in the next project ;)
