inspirations...frogging...

i almost finished with the back part of my pink tshirt..only about 5-6 rows to go on the to shaping the neckline and shoulder. since i did some adjustments with the gauge..it turned out that i made it smaller...sigh...
the armhole were fine, but all the rows before shapping.. too little stitches left... ummm..uggghh...ugghh...



the original pattern's gauge is 25 sts-32 row using needle no. 3.75 mm and 32 sts-32row using 3.25 or 3.5 mm needle.
miami yarn that i use, the gauge is 20 sts-28 row.. so it's bigger then, after sketched and calculated, i knitted.
and during the almost finished back part, i put it on my back, took some metering.. and then.. sigh..it's too small...:-(
original pattern, the width is 46 cm.. and turned out my project only about 39 cm... perhaps my math not work too well during the calculating....

so, i got no choice...here come the frogs... ripped..ripped.... my mom helped me frogging....and i was back to square one, the 2x2 ribbing using 4 mm, and the body part using 3.5mm.



since i knew how to knit, i more noticing for the adv, when they have knitted items. perhaps it sound funny.. but i like it ..;)

so when took a break from re-knitting, i grabbed australian woman mag, april 2005... and seen some adverstisement from target and other store.. they have nice knitted wear... all machine for sure... i love the lace cardigan. it's beautiful..
but doing it with black yarn..can be lots of effort and energy...

but just as inspirations, maybe you like to make all of these nice clothes too?
