...because not everyone who posts patterns in their blogs knows what the heck they're doing. Granted, I say this as someone who hopes to eventually start posting patterns here, but I just knitted a hat for an adult that turned out approximately large enough for a toddler. I can't go into too much detail here, since it's a Christmas present, but upon unraveling about 30 rows (which sucks to do, let me tell you) I discovered that it wasn't the whole pattern that was to blame, it was just the last 30 rows that are completely illogical and not thought-through. So I have to re-write the end of the pattern myself and hope it turns out better. I don't have time for crap like this - it's December 5th and I only have about half of my gifts done. That'll teach me to find patterns by googling.
Incidentally, I do plan on posting pictures of all the things I've been knitting lately, after Christmas.
