I wrote this big rant all about how primary schools should remember that they actually have primary-school aged children enrolled, and how they should perhaps take this into account when planning school presentation nights and how this is even more important the very next day when they invite families (many with pre-school aged children) down to the park and then force them to sit in the hot sun for two freakin’ hours while they perform The Nutcracker (for the love of crap!!!)*, but I read back over it, and it made me sound like an angry lunatic, so instead I’m just going to make with the pretty:
Wanida in STR Puck’s Mischief, which I now have to rip back, because even though I am bang on gauge (32st/10cm), and even though I tried it on after I finished the ribbing (at which time it fit fine), I now can’t get it over my heel. I’m not actually too sad over this, because the STR Mediumweight is quite a robust yarn, which makes this a really tight gauge, and I’m finding it a little hard on my hands, especially the K3tog and SSSK. Soooo… I’ll be glad to go up a needle size.
*For those of you thinking “And how exactly is this NOT a rant?”, that is not even close to being as ranty as the full version. Trust me on this.
