ack...that must be super frustrating! I'm still fairly new at knitting and I haven't yet taken the time to work on getting my gauge right...Thus far the things I've made haven't been too complicated and the gauge hasen'tt mattered quite as much but I have started work on my first sweater, and instead of trying to match the gauge correctly, I've just modified the pattern to fit what I want...I guess I've just been too lazy to work on it but as I've found working on this sweater, I don't think I've really saved any time at all and it seems to be even more difficult trying to change the pattern than just sitting down and working out a quick gauge swatch...I'll finish the sweater (I've already got too much time invested in it not to), but I know in the future that I'll make sure to have the gauge right before starting on another big project...
