Knowing when to quit

Well, I've been working on a certain pink and green project for most of this week. A couple of nights ago I finished it and the next day I tried it out and

it was hopeless.

Too big, entirely dysfunctional, and I didn't much like the charted pattern I used.

What to do?

I got home, took a photograph, did some measurements and made some notes, and then...

F r o g g e d

Not all the way. Just enough to get me to my size. Right away so I wouldn't lose my nerve.

And then I spent the rest of the day reknitting it and wet-blocking it.

And now it is dry and I will try it again because I know that the right time to quit is

not yet!

Mary, you posted this at 3:51 a.m. Please tell me this is some weird computer glitch.

But I'm glad your Mysterious Something is finally working for you!
