I swear to you, this will be my final Yarn Along for this project. I am determined to finish it before next Wednesday. Determined. To the point that I know I’m doing something wrong, and yet I am giving myself permission to move it along.
I don’t know what’s happening here. The idea is that you knit the body pattern until you have about 1/4 of your yarn left, and then you knit up along the other edge, creating a ruffle. Somehow, the wraps and turns combining with knitting two stitches together has baffled me at some points.
For the most part, I think it looks pretty good. And I’m deciding the let the awkward bits go. I remind myself that if I wanted to give a perfect gift, I would buy it at the store. And the recipient won’t even notice my novice mistakes. I think she will just be wowed by the amazing color and feel of this gorgeous yarn.
We’ll see how well I do. I have suspicious feeling that it will get ripped back to the beginning of the edging pattern and begun anew, but I’m going to attempt to reign in my insane desire for order, and let it happen.
p.s. I do so solemnly swear that I will have finished the book All Wrapped Up too. That thing has been sadly renewed one too many times.
