It is a Terrible Moment

When you realize that you've knit an entire sweater on the wrong needle. Damn.

Oh man that suxs! It looks SO pretty you will have to fond someone it will fit!

Oh no!

Nancy said...

Oh no - you have my deepest condolences. And it's such a beautiful yarn, too. Surely you know someone who it will fit perfectly, thus at least getting you one up on your holiday knitting...?

Uh oh. I am very sorry. (Was your gauge close?)

What!!!!!!!! How sickening. Our thoughts are with you.

You are not alone. I have done this before (swatch gauge on size 7, sweater on size 6 needles) and chose to dismantle the sweater and knit the whole thing all over again. You may feel differently. . .

Heh. I did that, too, but with a vest, so not as painful, but still and UGH! moment. So sorry!

So, what are you going to do? Can you block it to within an inch of its life and hope for the best? Has it become an early Christmas gift for someone (at least you'll feel like you are ahead of the game for the holidays)? Do tell what the final outcome was. And sorry that you had to go through that rotten sinking feeling upon discovery of the error.
