The Hallow-Holy Crap!

I finished the Hallowig. If you recall, it is supposed to look like this:


Mine was too small and pretty hideous. I never bother to check my gauge, so I usually knit objects smaller and much tighter than necessary.

You probably shouldn't look directly at it, but here it is if you are curious. I forced Patrick to model it for me. Enjoy at your own risk:



P.S. The string is hanging there b/c I didn't have the strength in me to weave in the ends. Why bother, hunh? lol.

I have same problem; almost never bother to make a swatch and I knit very tight. Maybe that is the reason why I don´t knit sweaters.... But he seems enjoying it!!! ;-D

Marika! Thanks for the comment. I'm glad I'm not alone when it comes to ignoring swatches. And, Patrick is being a fantastic sport about wearing the wig. It wouldn't even fit on my head.!

a very nice look for p-money. fierce, yet also very understated.
what else do we have to look forward to from finland's next top model?
