Shalom Cardigan is Finished :(

It's done. But. It's too big.  :((((   I am so discouraged. I did a gauge swatch, I don't know what I did wrong?...  Unless, it's because I switched to circular needles, and maybe that's why. I know I didn't re-check my gauge after I switched.  Sigh.  I guess I will have to find someone to give it to. Although I don't know what size it is..  Ugh. 

Well... After my failure with the Shalom Cardigan, what did I do? Dug out my Central Park Hoodie to work on.  I must be crazy. lol.  I sewed the shoulder seams, but then decided I am going to have to re-block it before I do anything else.  Then I dug out my Earl Grey socks and worked on those.  I must be a glutton for punishment, eh? :P  The Earl Grey socks are not that hard, it's just a couple parts of the "Clock" that are completely confusing..  The rest is just straight knitting. (I am still on the sock part..  Haven't gotten to the heel yet..)

I hope the Central Park Hoodie will fit me. Now I'm even more scared to finish it, after the Shalom Cardigan. :/
