I hate, hate, hate to gauge swatch and I figured that I didn’t really need to do so if I was knitting a scarf. So I knitted along on my project for my funky scarf pal, but after felting, the scarf seems a bit short and wide (without wrapping, it hits about my waist), rather than the long and thin I predicted from the photo of the completed scarf on the pattern. Plus, I knit the brooch for it (the pink flower) and I kind of hate it. Plus, it just doesn’t seem that funky. I would appreciate any honest feedback. I still have time to knit something different.
