I feel your pain!!! The vest is really beautiful, though. Love the sock and roving, also.

Kat

AARRRGGGHHHHHH! I feel the pain all the way over here in Michigan!!!! Copper and Penny are crying too!!! Nibbles is in dispair as well! It is a house in mourning for you! I shall toast the demise of that dratted vest this evening!

Kathy

I'm sorry. Time out is appropriate for that misbehaving vest.

jessie

So sad. On the bright side, at least it's only a vest and not a whole sweater! (Small consolation, I know.)

Lovely socks. I am hoping to start carrying some bamboo/merino/nylon sock yarn soon, but I was thinking I need some volunteers to give it a test run first. Your positive review helps.

My Real Vermonter mohair/wool/alpaca roving has arrived. Maybe you should practice some sock-yarn spinning on that....

Ack, a sales pitch. I'm sorry, I'm a bad commenter!

Marguerite

Sympathy on the vest.

Don't beat yourself up to much about not swatching. Often when I bother to swatch, the gauge in the actual garment turns out different from the swatch. I'm just as accurate guessing as swatching.

Laurie

Ouch. Time outs definitely lend perspective. Take as much time as you need, and then it feels better.

Lynne

Kim, Kim, Kim. Do you want a hug?

Anne

I have every confidence you'll get it straightened out and ready to wear for the fall. A little marinating never hurt anything!

Diane

The vest looks fab! Don't get too low over it. Have you tried a Wooly Board? It's great for just that king of thing.

Manise

I'm so sorry Kim. Does the seedstitch make it harder to obtain a proper gauge and does it not block out as much because of it? Or does the pattern just run small? What yarn did you use? I have the pattern and was going to give it a try. The color and stitch definition is stunning.

Monica

Oy, it looks great, sorry it doesn't fit.

Cheryl

I suppose you've already tried blocking the thing? Then I guess it's time to shove it into the closet for a while.

Cara

Ugh - I'm sorry about the vest. That so sucks.

Ruinwen

I'm so sorry about the vest. The pattern really is lovely...

The merino and bamboo look yummy; what a great combo. Your socks are looking great!

Ruinwen
:)

Carole

I'm sorry about the vest.

Wool Winder

The vest is so pretty. It's a shame it doesn't fit. It will be worth the effort to fix it. You'll have more energy to deal with it later.

margene

Can you push and pull the vest into submission!? It's sad to put all that time into something and then have it not be right.

Laritza

I want a dress form too. Thing is I don't know which one to get. You can get a better price using a 50% off coupon at the same store.
