Inland is a huge disaster. I messed up. BAD. Before I started, I knew I was between sizes, but I decided to knit the smaller of the two sizes because it seemed like a bulkier knit and I thought if it was a tad too snug I could make the necessary adjustments while I blocked it. Turns out I made the wrong decision. It was WAY too snug. So I frogged it; all the way back to where I divided for the sleeves. After I ripped it out, I placed it on the bookshelf and I haven’t touched it for three days. I know I technically have a deadline, but I just can’t deal with it right now.
By the way, do people still say frogged? Or is that so not cool anymore? Should I say I ripped it out? Enlighten me, please.
I’ve been working on a basic pair of socks since then. Stockinette stitch. Nothing fancy. It’s what I need right now. The sock yarn has been sitting in my stash for almost ten years. Isn’t it funny how yarn can be a reflection of your developing taste/style over the years? Ten years ago, I was, ahem, twenty-two years old. I loved bright colors, especially bright pink and green. Now, I gravitate toward much more natural and softer tones. Honestly though, it doesn’t matter what the color of my project is as long as it’s simple and gives me something to knit until I’m ready to tackle my sweater again.
Knitting. It’s not for the weak.
Oh that stinks and yes I still say Frogged for the most sever cases of when my knitting attacks!
Good to know I’m not completely out of the loop 😉
Basic stockinette shows off socks in the most lovely way!
Yes, I think so too! Plus, it makes it easier to watch television and knit at the same time!
Yes, people still say frogged. Rip it, rip it.
Sorry you had to frog. 🙁 Better to frog and have it perfect than not and not.
Thanks, Amanda. And I agree, in the long run, I would rather have a good sweater take me twice as long to knit as a sweater that I knit up faster but can’t wear.
This website is one thing that’s needed on the web, somebody with a bit originality. helpful job for bringing one thing new to the web!
naturally like your web site but you have to check the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I will certainly come back again.
