My second project…..uuuugh……finally put out of its misery and was assassinated around the first of the year. Look to your left and you will see what is left.
Becoming over confident and over zealous I put project #2 into a courier bag and carried it with me where ever I went as I wanted to be done with this like after the 5 row of stitching. I learned a very good lesson about tension. Somewhere about the time I started carrying my bag around I just knitted and never looked down at the results from time to time. Finally 20 rows later I pull it out and evaluate it and VIOLA it is no longer a scarf/shawl but now a big freaking Y shape LOL.
I ripped it back thinking it would be easy just to re-do it from the point where I let my tension go. Well that is what it looked like after wards and the yarn is not forgiving so I hacked and slashed it.
I have started project #3 now which is the rebirth of this scarf to be now 9 stitches shorter (thank the heavens) and really contemplating buying metal needles to help with the resistance from the bamboo needles I am using currently.
Happy New Years and Cheers to all.
