Unravelling

It was and now it’s not.

That big knitting project I was just hailing… Well let’s say BIG knitting project. Having never made a cardigan before with no idea how much the weight of the wool drapes and stretches ( it stretched around lily twice!) or getting my gauge, measurements and maths to add up

Oops…
So unraveling began amidst weaping and a wailing…
And attempt five begins…
I will get it.
I am persistent… ( stubborn)
I’m surprised in the end at how quickly it all comes undone, and at how much I really don’t mind! Because I loved doing all that knitting and now I have the pleasure of more knitting! And I like the way all those little stitches bump away as you pull the yarn out…

  2. Gathered berries in my palm frond basket. It’s now a lovely golden colour with pinky purple dots. Maybe I’ll go back and restart my last scarf mistake. I’ve been dreading nags in the wool.
