Zero Degrees this Morning! Ugh!I knit industriously on my Hermione's Scarf this week. I added charted rows of my own choosing which complicated things a bit. Even though I didn't like the first blue section, I knit for miles more before committing to taking it out. Solution? Cut the scarf in half, knit a better section and graft it back together. You think I'm joking? Alas, no joke.
Here is my beautiful little scarf in two pieces.
- I ripped back and put the stitches on a set of needles.
- I selected a better chart and knit that section again. This actually was the worst part. I couldn't find a chart that went well with the rest of the scarf. I was getting tired and cranky as a result of choosing knitting over sleep for several consecutive evenings. After pouring over books, knitting and ripping out for hours, I finally found a pattern that I liked a lot in Andean Folk Knits.
- I went to bed.
- I finished knitting that section this morning and have begun the grafting process.
- I ate a big salad while blogging because I can't eat and knit at the same time.
Here I have grafted it half way. Very fiddly.
If you say you liked it better before, I will simply deny that you have good taste. Some of the stitches are lumpy and bumpy from all the fuss, but I am confident that it will all come out in the wash. (Blocking).
Thanks for checking in! Please don't use this post as evidence at my insanity hearing. ;)
