Knitting fails.


Sometimes I just think maybe I should give up on a pattern.  Or a project.  I’ve knit

this pattern  several times and it’s turned out really well each time.  Until now.  I currently have one, nearly finished, on my needles.  It’s the third time I had to start this particular sweater – first I dropped some stitches.  Then my husband pulled it off the needles when he laid down on the couch and didn’t realize it was there (it was under a blanket so the cat wouldn’t attack it).   Now I’m going to have to rip it back to the underarms.

Somehow I missed the ribbing for the neck.  Which has to be done as an integral part of the sweater, you really can’t pick up and knit it after the fact.

This is throwing a SERIOUS wrench into my holiday knitting schedule.

  1. I started learning to crochet last year, and although a few things turned out fine, it’s just so radius, time consuming and for me, very complicated. I guess I’m just not cut out for that sort of thing, but I admire those who have a talent for knitting and crochet.
