I made the stupidist move the other day.
My mom and I went out to my LYS and we were looking for a yarn that had a simmilar gauge. I thought the gauge was 20 sts and 26 rows=4 inches St st on larger needles. So we were looking and looking as I was getting more dissapointed
with each unsuitable yarn. Then tonight I look at the pattern and it's 19 sts and 26 rows=4 inches St st on larger needles. Duh. So I think we have to go back and relook! I hop eI get started soon. I have waited and waited for the book. I was reserving it from the library. I was waiting patiently for once. Then my mom's boyfriend gives me $20 and tells me to go get it from Barnes and Noble. So I go buy it. Then the next day I get an email from the library saying it came in !
But it was a good investmernt!
