In which the rogue knitting comes back to get me.

I finished Askew very quickly. And it was great fun to knit. But I made two crucial errors. I failed to check my gauge, rashly working on the theory that by knitting a size down but with larger needles and and chunkier yarn I would be fine. I also failed to pay attention to the fact that the pattern very clearly states that the sizing is very snug. And it is. So I am glad I knit my first attempt in cheaper yarn. It is not a total loss (besides having been fun to knit anyway). Since the SWS yarn felts really well, I think I'll sew up the bottom, and make a cute bag.
Pattern: Askew
Needles: Clover circular 8's
Yarn: Patons SWS in Natural Pink and Natural Geranium
