Can You Say Uggghhhhhhhhh??
Not enough apparently.
Here is a photo of my latest knitting disappointment - The Talia that I've talked everyone else into knitting. Yes, the dear Talia is done. And it's absolutely HORRIBLE. There isn't a word for this - horrible isn't enough. Can we all say, "Ugggghhhh" in unison????
I finished sewing up the shoulder seams and was ready to do the edging to finish it off when I decided it looked a tad LARGE. So I tried it on.
Even if I wacked 5 inches off the huge lanky sleeves/arm area, I'd also have to pull it in several inches around the waist and hips to make it fit. And I am NOT small, folks, so you can imagine that I've knit a handmade TENT.
This after getting gauge when swatching?
I am so mad. Now I remember how I felt in 8th grade HomeEc class when I decided, after sewing one too many unflattering outfits that I would never sew again. This isn't fun. This is really flailing me.
If it weren't for lace right now, and an occasional successful sock, I'd be ready to stow away my yarn and needles out of frustration.
