I Think We Have A Problem…

So I’m not using the recommended yarn for my Einstein Coat, but I am getting gauge — so it shouldn’t be a problem, right? WRONG.

While waiting for things to upload to the server, I took the bottom portion and held it up to me to see the length; the top portion of the coat is only 39 ridges of garter stitch. My project? Yeah, not even close to the length it needs to be. Not close at all. Not even if it is reaaaaaaally stretched out.

No point in keeping this up because it won’t fit. I’m resisting the urge to throw the yarn ball across the room right now. *sigh*

I love crafts and I know they often ease stress in my life, but I totally relate with you when they JUST DON’T WORK. It’s super frustrating. Give that ball of yarn a toss and release the frustration. Then carry on.

I had just started learning to knit before I flew to Hawaii. I thought it would offer something to do that would keep my mind occupied. I was so frustrated I thought I was going to go insane! How in the world do you have the patience to actually make something to wear?
