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!
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.
