I’m going to call it a case of hubris. I was knitting my bulky sweater and going through about 1½ balls of yarn a day and I’ll admit it, I was thinking – you know, I might be able to knit this sweater in a week!!

When last I showed this sweater (on 1/28) it looked like this:
FLOGS Collar

January 29:
Progress 1/29/11

January 31:
Progress 1/31/11

February 2 (Morning):
2/2/11 Progress

February 2 (Evening):
2/2/11 After

Cue trombone sounds: “Wha-wha-wha-waaaaaaaaaaaah!”

I took the whole thing apart.

I had  swatched, washed and blocked and measured my swatch, but then on a larger scale, my gauge grew and the sweater was just too big. So I frogged it and started again the evening of the 2nd in the next size down.

The good news is, it fits great now, and I’m right back to where I left off the first time yarn usage-wise and a little further ahead pattern-wise.
