When I was at KnitEast over the weekend, there was a little time for knitting. And then there was this.
Yes, I had to rip out. I didn't like my gauge after a couple rounds, but I kept knitting - because you never know. It didn't get any better with additional rounds. No surprise there. One look at the pattern picture gave me the nudge I needed to slide everything off the needles.
Once I ripped out, I didn't waste any time. I cast on right away with smaller needles, and I'm happy I did.
Leaving Cowl. This is so much better . . . it might be hard to put it down.
