To Frog or not to Frog?

Eugh!!! I was getting on so well with Calisto, the pattern was just perfect and I was sure the yarn was right and it would look great.

Easy knit and adapted the pattern as I thought I wouldn’t have enough yarn, got into a bit of a tangle when I tried to undo two rows at a time whilst on needle. But all seemed alright.

BUT as I got nearer to the end I began to think that it was going to be HUGE when it came off the needles and my euphoria began to subside. Would it be so big that I couldn’t wear it? There was only one way to to find out so it was off the needles and round my neck – Speaking of frogs we seem to be getting quite a few brought indoors especially in the evenings by another member of the household – he who is black and white and a bit special. No it’s not a murder on the TV but a serial killer on the loose in the kitchen!

“Me? No I would never do anything like that”  but the evidence is for all to see – hopping round the tiles screaming.

But back to the main question to frog or not well let’s see

It looks too big even without the fringe so I guess it will be frogged and re knitted on a smaller needle and less stitches. 4=1inch so maybe 180 stitches instead of 220. What do you think?
