I changed my mind…

I cast on for the fingerless mittens, but it didn’t feel right. I wanted to knit, but not those … so I ripped ‘em out and I’m back to not knowing what to knit for the Cabin Cove Yarn KAL. *sigh*

On a positive note, I did finished my toe-up socks but was struck by a moment of perfectionism and was disappointed by the cast off, which was stretchy but still too tight in my opinion. Realistically, I knew these socks would not be perfect, and I’ve been telling myself that all along … but I guess there was still a part of me that wanted them to be. :( I will have pictures at some point.

I’ve been working on my little crochet baby sweater ’cause I just want it to be finished and I don’t like having an unfinished project around for so long so hopefully, I’ll have a finished photo of that soon. and honestly? I’d rather be knitting.

The ‘neverending scarf’ is now about 30 inches long. Things are moving much faster now that I understand ‘how’ I knit. Part of the scarf does have twisted stitches, but unless you look close, you can’t really tell.

I guess that’s it for now. Have a good week!!!

  1. Remember the No Pressure part of our along? You’ll figure it out when the time is right, sweetie. No rush. We’re knitters, we don’t go far. *hugs*

  2. Don’t stress yourself about the fact that the socks are not perfect. You should see my ‘dwarf hat’. LOL There are so many parts of it I just don’t like and I only have three inches of it so far.

    I was about to just rip everything out yesterday but then I remembered what a wonderful friend told me last weekend; that I shouldn’t pressure myself, that not everything has to be perfect and that a little flaw wouldn’t diminish the beauty of the end product. And she’s right, don’t you think?

  3. Yay, I found you again. I got your RSS feed to work and read at last!
    Not to worry, the right project will come along for you out of the blue. You’re great that way.

  4. Thank you so much for the comment, I really needed that! I hated my first toe up socks. To be truthful, I hated them so much that I only finished one and never did, nor ever will finish the second one. I didn’t like the bind off edge at the top. Not stretchy enough for me. I prefer the cuff down much better…but that is just me.

    You should check out the KAL that a friend and I started called Pea Pod KAL. Even though it is a KAL you could crochet…I do. Maybe that will help you with the WIP that you are talking about :-)

    Thanks again for reading and commenting…just feels nice to hear a little cyber love once in a while (that sounded dirty huh? Didn’t mean it like that :-)
