This week it seems everything I touched had to be frogged or tinked.
I took the lovely Hardtwist Petite by Lisa Souza that I picked up at Stitches South and started Ishbel. One would think that after nearly five years of knitting that I would know how to read a knitting pattern by now. Sigh! I was nearly finished with the ‘boring’ knit of the pattern when it was brought to my attention that the small scarf size took over 600 yards of fingering weight. My skein was 500 yards. Grrrrrrr……I frogged it. It was such a beautiful fabric. So I found a gorgeous pattern for The Checkerboard Lace Scarf. I cast on and by row 8 I was tinking. I tinked back 3 rows when I threw in the towel and ripped the whole thing out. I wound the yarn back around the cake and gave it a loving pat and put it in time out. It isn’t the yarn it is me.
Today I picked up the Andrea Reversible. I messed up immediately and tinked back three rows. I ended up ripping back to the lifeline. Then I put it back into the project bag and put the needles down.
I think my mojo is injured. So I’ll practice some things for a few days before I pick up a project again. Sometimes the planets are not aligned as they should be.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day!
