You know how you start a project and have such great expectations for it? But as you knit along, you realize that it's going to be too small, or the yarn is starting to pool in a way you don't like? Or you're just not feeling the love??
You now have my Sunday. I'm going thru the basket that I keep near my bed and I'm realizing some of the projects I have going on just arent working.
is now this.
This bath mat just wasn't making me happy. It was smaller than I wanted it to be, plus I'm thinking how I will have to add something rubbery on the back to keep it from slipping. On a rug that will be too small. Nah. So now I have a POUND of kitchen cotton in my closet.
Then I went from this
I wasn't happy with the way it was pooling. I got this the last time I made it for #1 Son
more of a speckled look which I like better. The only drawback is that those socks were supposed to be part of a baby shower gift for a friend, but I can always make another pair for her later.
While I'm not much of a frogger, I'm glad I ripped out these projects. It allows me to focus on the projects I do want to work on, like Baby Girl's tank dress and my Maizy socks, both of which have been on hold.
And to top things off, I found this.
A size 1 METAL dpn. It was straight when I put it away, it looked like this when I took it out. There are no unexplained injuries so I have NO IDEA what happened to it.
While I wasn't feeling the love with my yarn, I was feeling it with my cross stitch. I stitched up a card for #1 Son's teacher. The stitching is done, now I just have to cut it to fit the card opening. Add in a gift card and you've got a nice Teacher Appreciation gift. I'll post a pic of it when its framed in the card.
