WiP Wednesday: 14,552 Stitches Edition

That, by the way, is the number of stitches I ripped out the other night when I frogged this scarf. I love the yarn (malabrigo sock in "eggplant") and the pattern ("Carlina" by Kitman Figueroa), but my gauge was off and it was looking to be about two feet wide post-blocking. That wouldn't have been a problem by itself except for the fact that I would have run out of yarn after about five and a half feet and I bought the yarn a really long time ago so I couldn't get another skein. Alas.

Sadly, it's probably going to be a few weeks before I can start over on this. I still have to knit my sister's scarf for her, and I have barely started it.

One day, I will learn to make gauge swatches.
