Who knew?  I guess I should have.

I finished the whole sleeve chart and about 20 more rows before I thought, hey!  I should check my gauge again!  Yeah.  6 st to the inch.  In some places 7.  It was a perfect 4.5 when I started.

I know cables make my gauge tighter and being livid doesn't help either.   Angry Grin

Moral:  When visiting mom, only knit things where gauge doesn't matter.  Like nooses.   Grin

Ha ha! Once I visited my mom while working on a sock. The cuff is a completely different gauge than the foot! Completely!

Note to self: learn to knit nooses. The last time I visited my mother she and I got into a HUGE fight which resulted in my throwing my needles across the room, half finished scarf slips of as it sails through the air, lands on dog, dog grabs knitting and runs through house, frogging all the way. One needle rolls under the couch, the other STICKS INTO THE WALL, like a dart (they were aluminum). In other words, I know exactly what you are feeling. Smiley. Breathe in, breathe out.

Heh, when I visit family I make sure to bring something along to keep from going insane. I make equally sure to have that something be very simple, that requires minimal brain function Wink

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

lol. I still live with my parents, but, on occasion, knitting is the only keeping me from screaming at the top of my lungs. Just breathe and knit!  Wink

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

Ha, two berets, a hat, and a scarf speak volumes for your theory.

I can so relate to really needing to knit.  A knitting jones.

From now on I will read into all patterns:  Adjust gauge for mood.   Cheesy

Oh yeah, I hear ya.  I just don't even try - I can't knit unless in my knitting zone.  Unhappy feelings kill the knitting zone.  Not a good thing.
But, if you were to combine the different moods into one project, it could be like an Expressionist knit, all crazy and full of emotion.  Just call it an artwork and frame it!  Cheesy
