WIP Wednesday- when good gauge goes bad

Another great installment!

because wool fixes everything

Aka: spruce cowl, take two.

You guys remember my pretty spruce cowl , right?

Well. I finished the first skein! And Russian joined the second skein!
…then I went to knit night and re-saw my inspiration spruce cowl knit by a friend.
And it was squishy
…like a marshmallow.

My spruce? This full skein and a bit of rather gorgeous berroco vintage knit and knit (and knit) during some intense hockey games? And ringette games? And ballet classes? And swimming lessons? (Which, actually, all happened in one week, I might be being a wee bit overly dramatic)

Ya, that’s the one. It was neither squishy, not marshmellowy. Where did I go wrong?

Well my dears, I did a simple thing wrong. I knit my vintage to the gauge on the tag. Not the gauge of the patterns. Ugh, rookie mistake!
I couldn’t bear to frog all that work right away…
