foiled once and recovering

I started on my gray seamless raglan for my man, but I was sadly disappointed to find that I was knitting at a radically different gauge than I'd gotten for my swatch. He's larger than I am, but not by this much!
Sigh. Relegated to the frog pond. In an effort to build up my confidence for take 2 on the sweater, but still keeping with the Zimmermania theme, I've now started a pair of socks.Hard to see the little garter stitch border on the heel flap
I'm keeping this a short post, but more details are available at my blog!


  • Hi evergreen - I got a good laugh out of your picture. At least you're giving it a try. I started a sweater for my husband in 1992 and it is really beautiful up to the armpits. But, I am AFRAID to finish it because I think that I can't make it fit. It is my intimidation project - because I want it to be perfect and I'm afraid to face imperfection. I've gone on to finish many other projects - but nothing for my husband. I'll get there someday, I'm sure.
