« Well, Of COURSE Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction | Main | On My Mind And On My Needles »

February 04, 2007



Well - doesn't that just stink? One must wonder what they meant when they said "All patterns triple checked." Perhaps they're from a universe far, far away where the models are actually mutants who have the measurements to make these garments look normal? Please know that your responsibility to your blog is very much appreciated! I was liking your project so much I was moving this jacket up closer to the top of my list of "to-do's." At the very least if I decide to try it, I'm forewarned. However, I'm truly sorry you had to be the guinea pig.

Best wishes for a much better week!


Call it the Bron's Brain Band.

And just so you know, you have given me the courage to be more adventuresome in my knitting. Maybe fearless is the better word but either way, you inspire a lot of us to try more. Thank you.


Damn patterns not working out, I hate that crap!

Bron's Brain Band, hows that? Not very appealing, but I need to wake up a bit more.

I have to go back and see where that cardi pattern came from-I give you tons of props for always jumping in on new patterns though, you inspire me.


Darn, it's from the latest Family circle isn't it (yes, it's sitting here, I haven't look, but a quick peruse of your blog points me there)-sheesh that aggravates me too and I didn't go through it.


Well, I just crossed that of my 'next' list...sigh...I'm sorry you hadn't had so much trouble with it but I am so glad you blogged about it, thank I have to find my next project,


I had NO idea's for names, and I opened your comments and say "Bron's Brain Band"! Genius!

That sucks about that cardi. I've never done any crochet except finishing, but it astonishes how badly written these crochet patterns you sometimes find are. How can they even be printed? I say throw it in the corner, no explanation necessary.


Hey, it's no problem for me if you occasionally need to say "I'm throwing it in the corner, don't ask!" ;)


Sorry to hear the cardi didn't work out... maybe you can reuse the yarn? If that happened to me I'd probably go ahead sew it up all wonky and wear it with scrunched up shoulders. "Why yes it's homemade, however can you tell?" LOL

Clearly it's a pattern flaw. Several. Rip it and be done with it. Pretty pattern stitch though. And I HATE the poses knit/crochet work is done in! Show the sides, show the top and bottom, show the freaking details.

Cute crocheted Calorimetry!


I am so glad you're writing up the pattern, I want one so badly, but I knit even more badly (ok ok, teach, worse)lol.


Thanks for the cardi commiseration everyone! And Andrea, I'll take your advice & not feel guilty if I just throw my next failure in the corner with no explanation!

Beezie - LOL! I could be Quasimoto! Yes, I'll save the yarn, but I'm starting to think it's jinxed. This is the second project with it that didn't work out.
