Why it's important to READ a pattern
I started the very lovely Picovoli by Grumperina last week. I'm now down to the bust, and it's looking rather dashing. However, I've been noticing that it looks a little tiny. Did I do a gauge swatch? Well of course not. So can I really complain that it's looking like a shirt for a 10 yr old? Not really. But my gauge is usually very spot on, so I glanced back at the pattern to double check my gauge. Lo and behold - it calls for size 4 needles, not the 3s I've been using. Arrrrrggghhhh!!!!!! Oh well. It's yet another adorable project that will be gifted to my very petite kid sister. She even loves the color. Lesson learned.
