Annoyed And At A Stand-Still

The Green Woman and I will be having a little chat this weekend about her alarming habit of tripping me up at the beginning of a circular lace project by whispering in my ear something about needing to use the smaller needle. As I closed in to finishing the third section on each mandala - realizing I hadn't even used up a single skein for either - I realized that they are both, quite simply, much too small.

Sigh.

Oh, how sad. I guess they are each just rather large swatches ... it's a shame when that happens!

Oh dear! I'm sorry to hear it.

I hope you've got fun plans for the long weekend!

I have the opposite problem. Because I'm a loose knitter, mine tend to be larger than expected. Are you sure these would not block out sufficiently?
