Ugh… I have a belly shirt

My DSL tank came out too short. I was in denial about it for a very long time. I measured very carefully but ya know when in a project there is a point of no return. Or one that you hope is the point of no return. I hit that point in the beginning of the project. I should have noticed when I had a whole ball of yarn left over yesterday.  The tank was screaming at me, “something is just not right.”  I started seaming the thing today and was thinking to my self, “Its going to be too short. I should just stop right there.” I seamed the shoulders and told myself, “it doesn’t look too bad”. Then I seamed one of the sides and I couldn’t continue the denial. I will be frogging this tank shortly. I just don’t want to do it tonight. Ugh… What a nightmare. That will teach me to measure constantly during the knitting process. I don’t even have the heart to take a picture of it. It’s just too ugly to show to anyone.  I don’t know if the yarn is right for this project either.  Maybe I’m in denial about that too.



  1. Oh honey, I am so sorry. I know how horrible it is to REALLY want a project to work out for you and have it not.

  2. Rip it. Fast, like a Band-Aid. It’ll only hurt for a moment, and when you’re done, you’ll have beautiful new yarn to make into something else.
