If It Could Go Wrong

I know that in my last post I said that I had a kink in my neck that was causing pain and that I couldn’t do any knitting because of it. Well. It got worse and worse. I tried to suffer through as best I could and go to work. It was one of the more painful things I’ve had to deal with and still go to work. With that being said I didn’t get a lot of knitting or crocheting done in the last week. I feel like I’ve gotten way behind.

I got my yarnbox in on Monday. I was so excited. I can’t wait to start working on it. However, I still haven’t gotten the project from last month completed yet. Spoiler: I’ll be using the knitting pattern for this month as well. The colors are absolutely beautiful.

I also got in a box of yarn that I purchased about 2 weeks ago from yarnsupply.com. I bought some Permier Sweet Rolls, which are similar to Caron Cakes and Bernat Pop. Sweet Rolls are 100% acrylic and they have a lot of beautiful colors.

I got my truck running again with the help of a friend who managed to see everything I overlooked. So I’ve been driving my truck around for the last week. It feels nice to have her running again. She was one of the last big things my mom and I did together and her name is still on my registration. I wouldn’t give up this truck for anything.

I’m due to go back out on the road next week. Good news is that I’ll only be overnight for Monday night and I’ll be back Tuesday night. I’ll bring my yarnbox kit from last month and I’ll try to get some headway on it now that I’m feeling better!

Yarnbox Knitting Take 2

I was so disappointed in myself that I had to stop the pattern and frog it. I was crying the entire time I was ripping out the stitches that I slaved over for a week. However, I couldn’t fix the amount of problems that arose from me not paying attention to the pattern. I always ended up with one stitch too short regardless of the measures I took to fix it.

Memo to self: I don’t know better than the pattern!

(The aftermath)

I did start working on it again though, and it’s going so much smoother already. I’m excited about it again.

I think it looks way better than it did when I started originally.

Sometimes just frogging the yarn is so much better and easier than trying to fix any mixups. That’s something I had to learn the hard way when I first started knitting. Even though I have make a lot of mistakes, and I’ve frogged a lot of yarn, I still love this craft.
