What to do when it’s just not right?
You don’t believe me, do you?
These mitts (Malabrigo Mecha) are fine. They were knit for me, and they fit. I tweaked the pattern slightly, and made a longer cuff. I love the colour, but I wish the stitches weren’t quite so defined. Somehow, the yarn is a bit “harder” than I like in a mitt. Also, I won’t be using those gusset increases for the thumb ever again. They made holes…in a mitt…which doesn’t need ventilation.
This touque used only two of the three skeins that I have in this colour…and does not suit a single person who has tried it on.
This is five hours of airplane knitting. The pattern is great and I love the yarn, but with the gradient change, the lace pattern isn’t showing up in the dark portion. I also had to rescue a couple dropped stitches, and I’m not sure I got the pattern back in the right place. So, do I continue?
A ski sock that I wish I was knitting on a circular needle.
My favourite yarn, Álafoss Lopi, which has tried to be a cowl…three times, with two different patterns.
So…the only thing I could think of to do was to go to the yarn store again. Shibui silk cloud, anyone?
