A question in the blog comments yesterday:
Do you ever make mistakes in your knitting?
Who, me? Never! I’m perfect.
Did anyone believe that? No, I didn’t think so.
Yes, I make mistakes. All the time.
I’ll direct your attention to this blog entry. That’s probably the most dramatic mistake I ever made.
Nowadays I make small errors that come about because I’m not paying attention. I may cross a cable the wrong way, or knit a stitch in the wrong color on a colorwork project. But 999 times out of 1,000, I notice it immediately and fix it then and there. That 1 time out of 1,000 I won’t notice it until the next round, and I’ll fix it then.
I do it my way.
Sorry, I had to say that.
Ingrid went to the office with me yesterday. I knit her on the train and briefly at lunch. She makes great commuter knitting! The pattern is easily memorized and she’s fun to knit.
A couple of comments about the colors of Ingrid. She’s not black and white. She’s very very pale mint green and a variegated brown/olive mix. I’ve taken a photo of the Koigu in the skein in an attempt to show her true colors.
This is Laughing Lizard “Tabitha,” a cotton rayon blend that I bought at Knit Happens. I’m pretty sure this is the yarn that Kristine and Liz said was too much of a pain to dye, so it’s a one-off. I no doubt showed it to you before.
Well, it’s been calling out to me lately. I do believe I’m going to use it to attempt a Bottoms-Up Bucket Hat for the summer portion of Becky’s Bucket-Along. I will no doubt have to adjust the pattern somewhat as I’m betting Tabitha is a heavier yarn than called for in the pattern. It’s also slubby, which will make a difference. But that’s what makes life interesting, right?
Stay tuned for reports of success or disaster . . .
