Whenever you see a pile of yarn next to a lace project it's never good.
I was knitting along minding my own business when I turned my work and about two weeks worth of progress fell off the needles. No problem, I thought. I just found my way to a good starting place and went on.
Except a few days later I looked at where I came from and noticed-it looked awful. First I must have started on the wrong row. The lace was off. Then the stitches where I attached the border were so stretched out they had left holes. Tink. tink, tink. I started again and this time I used another thread to attach the border. Then I put it in time out for a while. Naughty old thing.
That wasn't all. I made this baby hat for the Purple Hat Project from one of their patterns but it wouldn't fit a grapefruit. Too small and too awful. That yarn is horrible to work with and horrible to look at. Ugh.
I didn't give up. I started again with different yarn but this time I think it's going to be too big. Goodness. This is not going well either.
Next in my long line of failures this week is my Tracery vest. I've been happily knitting along not realizing that all those arm and neck decreases were making my vest disappear faster than I think it should have.
Not counting the steeks, there is not much left on the back on on the fronts and still a long way to go to get the right length. I am not sure where this is going or how I'm going to fix it. It's in time out too.
Except for socks the only other thing I have on the needles is this giant blanket and it's too hot for all that yarn in my lap. This just hasn't been my week for the sticks and the string. I need cooler weather or a cooler head.
