Crap, crap, crap...
I thought maybe I had made a mistake. Now, I'm pretty sure I made a mistake.
I just took a picture of my current progress on my Faux Russian Stole so I could post it here and blog about it. And in the picture, I saw my glaring error. Somehow, it's much easier for me to spot my mistakes in a photo then it is in real life.
It is probably one of those things that you wouldn't notice if I didn't point it out. But of course - it is going to make me crazy and I have to rip back and fix it.
I think I knit a row twice.
Ripping back lace is seriously no fun. I know, I know - I shoulda used a life line, but I didn't!
The hardest part for me is trying to figure out what row I am ripping back to and then getting back on track with the charts. UGH.
In other project news, I started a new something that is going to be super cute:
I know it looks like a big brown blob right now, but trust me - it's going to be cute! I'm not saying what it is yet. I think Katie
probably can guess. It's her fault entirely that I needed to make this the second I saw it!
I don't know if I will be able to get this finished this week, but I'm going to try. I don't have too much more knitting to do on it, but I don't have a lot of knitting time this week. I have to go into tech at our Baltimore theatre. I sooo don't want to. I would much rather stay where I am, thank you! But they don't have anyone to open on lights, so lucky me - I get to go.
In addition to the above projects, I just picked up a project that had been languishing in the WIP bag for a while. After I saw this today on Stacey's Blog
, I suddenly remembered that I had started and never finished this:
It's a Provence Crocheted Market Bag
from Classic Elite
.(free pattern!) Every time I go to the grocery store, I am very conscious of how many freaking plastic bags I bring home. So, I've wanted to make myself a market bag for a while. I saw this pattern and thought it would be quick and perfect for what I wanted. Yes people, it's crochet - but I really like it.
I'm having some issues with joining the rounds, but I think I figured it out. My earlier joins are not so pretty, but I'm not as OCD about that as I am with my knitting. There will be no ripping! Besides, I'm making this for function, not form. The pattern repeat on this is super simple, so I'm hoping I can finish this while I'm in tech this week.
I think I am going to go work on it right now! I'm just not ready to face the lace ripping!
