Ok, so maybe I don’t hate ALL the knitting, but mostly, yes I do hate it right now. My niece came in my
knitting TV room and counted 15 balls of yarn I have with me. I think it’s a fair assessment that I am annoyed with about half of them right now.
I brought yarn with me to start the Cascade Knitterati Afghan. I had purchased yarn for another afghan a couple of years ago and didn’t finish it. I thought this would be a great chance to repurpose the yarn.
I started knitting and realized I don’t like the brown. More than that, there’s too little contrast between it and the green, particularly for a colour work square.
See what I mean. I’ve already ripped the square back to take out the green/brown section. I’m now debating ordering a darker brown, which is starting to diminish the benefit of “I’ll use yarn I already have”. **sigh**. I’ve pushed that to the far end of the couch.
So while I pondered an additional yarn purchase, I hauled out a scarf I brought to finish. It’s an easy 4 line pattern repeat. Easy enough to follow along…wrong:
See that nice switch from right side to wrong side? It’s at the end of the couch now too with the afghan til I work up the fortitude to rip it back.
I’d pick up a dishcloth but:
That’s right, I mucked up the twists in that. I have ripped it back but I’ve only made it worse:
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I’d pick up my old standby socks but I’m a little afraid of what I’d do to the them. I think I’ll have a nap and see what it looks like after. If nothing else maybe I’ll be ready to start something over. **sigh**
