Actually, the measuring/gauge was fine I just forgot to add an inch to each side for the seams. Silly rabbit. Better noticing at 6 inches than 16. I then had to undo about 2 or 3 inches 2 different times because I botched the double moss stitch border, probably by not paying attention (maybe knitting and season premieres don’t go well together…).
I hadn’t been in a yarn store in so long. Michael’s arts and crafts is just not the same. Yes, they have yarn (but not enough and it’s the same yarn in every store) and yes, they are great for just about everything but it’s not the same. Walking into a yarn store is peaceful. All the yarns and colors reaching to the ceiling and walking around just touching the yarn and thinking of all the wonderful things that could be from all that glorious yarn!
