Crime Scene

The evidence:



Exhibit A: the front of the Monster Jumper














Exhibit B: the comparison between the last jumper I knitted DH, and the size of the Monster Jumper












Exhibit C: the action taken on measuring said Monster Jumper







Yes it was too big when I finished doing the back but did I take any notice of that? Nooooo, it'll be ok, I said, DH likes em big, I said. And then when the front was done it was all too obvious that drastic measures must be taken.
So I am now up to row 50 of 170 on the back. Again.

Sentanced to knitting it again for crimes against gauges.

I started a couple of days ago but have been wallowing too much to post about it.
hmpf.
