Argh, frog frog frog
So I had almost finished one half of the 'I Do' shrug in seasilk, it was beautiful, I thought I'd have it finished before the end of January... but no. I tried on the arm, and it hung off me about three inches below my arm.....

So I actually measured myself (Shhhh, I know I should have done it first) and, while I had simply assumed I would be the biggest size out of S, M, L, and XL, it turns out I'm actually medium with short arms. Hmmm.... So I've just finished balling the whole thing up again and am going to have to start again.

I think it's one of those things for bigger girls - when most patterns only go up to a certain size, you start to assume that you're going to be the biggest one, if you're lucky, and then don't really want to measure yourself so you don't feel crap about it. But then this happens....

It's a good reason to have to frog, though, but oh god, the work I've still got to do...
