Pride cometh before the fall
Haste makes waste
A woman's work is never done, from break of day to setting sun.
Every cloud has a silver lining
So what brought this on?
Remember this from Sunday?
I was so proud of the fact I had gotten another square done and was on a roll. I sent photos to my daughter and she was super excited too. I also informed you that I needed to figure out the next 2 squares as to how to knit them so they would make a true log cabin effect. Guess what.......................
Yup, I had to frog both squares. I pulled the pattern out and realized the pattern called for 9 colors of yarn. We only were using 6. Therefore, we had to arrange the pattern a bit differently than the original designer did. It took me 4 hours to frog that yarn. I was so sad.
But...................I am not a quitter. There is too much money invested in this blanket to just forget about it. I am going to start it all over and this time it will be done correctly. This blanket needs to get done and out of my house. It has been hanging around since 2011. It is time to GO AWAY! I colored in the pattern blocks that came with the pattern:
This time, I took my time and really thought about how the colors should be to make the effect we are wanting. It came out perfect this time and I am now ready to begin the task of a redo.
Today is a bit of a slow day for me. Hubby and I have a nutritionist appointment and after that we are free for the rest of the day. I am going to start back on square one this afternoon while we kick back and enjoy some time together. My other WIP's have been put on hold until I get a handle on this. I need to slow down, read the instructions, look at my notes as to which color follows the one before. Thank goodness it is a garter stitch and nothing fancy. I know I complained about it being boring but maybe that is a "blessing in disguise".
Until next time.............................Happy Crafting!
