    Adrienne said...
    Well....it looks good but obviously somethings not working because you had to rip it...what happened??
    Wendy said...
    Oh... so sad.
    Love the colorway though!
    Telmah said...
    I am getting closer and closer to trying out that pattern in Malabrigo. You must warn others of your difficulties!
    gold said...

    Patty said...

    kim said...
    Oh, too bad. I'm sure you'll be back on track soon enough.
    del said...
    Oh no, what happened?
    chanknits said...

    Working Mom Knits said...

    Jeanine said...
    Crap! What happened???
    Michaela said...
    Completely unrelated to this post, just to let you know that in the Oliver's Blanket progress, your squares are in number 3! There is a photo on my blog in the side bar, and 2 of your squares are right there - one orange and one green. I'm only letting you know as you were worried you couldn't see them in number 1. Thanks for joining in! (At least I hope these were yours!)

    Beautiful yarn! what happened?
    Rizzo76 said...
    Oh, I can't look! :(

    Please say you're not giving up on it - I'm sure it will look lovely when it's done, especially in that glorious blood orange colour.

    I'm almost to the point where you're ripping back. I just need to finish up the purl/knit rows and I'm there. ;) Then on to our mini-KAL!
    Sereknitty said...
    Oh dear ... :(
    When you can again speak about it, let us know what happened ... colour of the yarn is tres yummy!
    KelInCal said...
    Uh-oh!

    It's going to look great when it's done, though. That color works well in that pattern. It's beeyooteefull!
    Macoco said...
    Oh no, rip-it rip-it. :( The color really is beautiful though.
    maceknits said...
    Oh no! What happened? At least you have a lifeline in there, so all is not lost, right? Was it the RLI and LLI that didn't look good? If that was the reason for the frog, I suggest doing your own favorite increase method, which is probably what you've concluded already. Hope it works out! The color looks great.
    Diane x hooky needle fingers said...
    why? what happened? love the color. what yarn is that?
    Shanda said...
    I empathize. I finished Zephyr's Juliet two months ago, and realized that it was too big :( (I should've heeded the 'net-advice that their patterns can run a tad large). After trying it on in numerous configurations (and admitting defeat!), I ripped it two days ago, washed the yarn (grey tweed Cascade 220), and re-wound it.
    Juliet is not being reincarnated as the Short-Sleeved Cardigan w/Ribbing from Fitted Knits! It's knitting up quite quickly, and will serve me well!
    A phoenix rises from the ashes!
    Good luck!
    Shanda said...
    The yarn is Cascade 128, not 220. Big deal, yeah...
    Virtuous said...
    Hey Shanda!

    Thanks for your phoenix rising story! ;op I am going to keep going and hope I stay on track!
    Pajnstl said...
    uh oh what happened? lol Nice color
    CynicalGal said...
    I feel your pain...
    tina said...
    Not good! I hope you have alcohol and chocolate.

    HUGS!
    Ms. Lee said...

    Virtuous said...

    Nope not giving up, just a setback that I plan to overcome!

    Rizzo76 said...
    Phew! :)

    Glad to hear it... I look forward to seeing the finished version on Ravelry.
    Sheila said...
    The yarn looks so scrumptious, now I'm looking for a post on the Rippppit!!!
    Cas... said...
    I know you won't quit. The color is beautiful though. I am sorry to see this but with this hobby we know the pitfalls you must encounter to improve. Consider this a good lesson and work it out!

    Sending you good knitting vibes!
    Don said...

    I'm tired of this cold weather rain. Ugh.
