Attack of the gauge beast

So... obviously I was much more relaxed than I normally am when I knit that gauge swatch for Deanna's britches... because we have catastrophic gauge failure. like 1/2 off per inch. Over 21 inches. That adds up.

At first I thought they looked small just because I'd been working on the satchel from knitty. But no. They're too small. I'm glad I had the wits enough to measure it before I got overly far into it, instead of waiting until the graft was done like I usually do.


I hate ripping back work.

*eek* well, if it had to happen, I'm glad you didn't get too far done!

Yikes, I can imagine that's incredibly painful to do!!

((((((((Milli))))))))))), so sorry.

I want to see pics of the satchel, though. :D
