Yarning

from saturday morning

from tuesday afternoon
I was almost done, just a couple rows from the finish line. I tried it on Fiona and OH my! Waaaaay too small. So I frogged the whole thing, bought the pattern to get the larger sizes and started over. The yarn is so lovely and the pattern so simple that it isn't too heart breaking to have to do it all again. I have decided to use the same yarn for projects for Fiona, Nuala, and Audrey but do something different for each of them, so it is matchy, but not too matchy. Which actually makes it a bit more exciting, I have two more patterns to find and work on.
The blanket has not been added to at all this week. It is easy but slow going, 160 stitches per row... ugh!

It's going to look great on Fiona and while it's a bummer it was too small at least you have more knitting to do and that's a good thing!

That colour is so vibrant. Shame you had to frog it all, and start again!

Oh - what a bummer that it was too small! I was working on a shirt for myself over the summer and when I was 1/3 of the way done I realized that I could have fit 2 of me in it. So - frogged the whole thing and haven't picked it up again.

It seems we have lots of frogging company this week. I really love that yarn color. I love the idea of using the same yarn to make different sweaters.

What a pain to have to frog. You seem to be ok with tho' that is a good thing! Love the colour of the yarn you are using, I would love to knit myself something in a similar colour.
