Yarn Therapy

I feed my yarn addiction

Knitting Standstill

I have so many projects in the works and they are all having problems! Did I unravel someone’s knitting in a past life? I dunno. Here’s the lineup:

  • Central Park Hoodie– It appears to be too small because the cables and ribbing make it squinch up (squinch being the technical term). I have to figure out if the resulting piece will be squinched or not.
  • Child’s Fairisle–The back looks great but I started the front piece and there is a mistake in the colorwork so I have to figure out what went wrong and undo it.
  • Seamingly Simple Vest–I have to untangle the second skein of yarn before continuing. Dh usually helps.
  • Chevron Scarf–zzzzzzzzzzz. Just bored.
  • Tess–OMG, I wanted badly to make this. I swatched, etc. Now, it just looks terrible. It is hard to tell if it will continue to look terrible or not. I don’t want to waste a lot of time if it will still look terrible. Ya know?
  • Shawl Collar Sweater–Got so bored with it I put it away. Will probably frog and make something for Amelia.
  • Cobblestone–I have to figure out why it got so darned huge and then restart it. Oy.
  • Spring Pearls Afghan–Was going along fine, but now I am one bobble short and have to squeeze one in there unless I want to undo the entire panel.

The plan:

Work on the vest until my brain recovers, then perhaps do a small project for FCS3 pal and then reassess.

At least the blog looks good! Knitting

I hate when all my projects go haywire at the same time. I recommend a super simple fast project that’s guaranteed to work out well, just to get things back on track!

I understand when good projects go bad. I have 13 UFO’s at the moment. Three are about to go to the frog pond and the yarn will be used for something else. Then, I have promised to finish at least one UFO on between each new project…..

So glad I’m not the only one! You can tend to think there is something wrong with you.
