My original plan was to knit the cowl in color blocks with two strands of different colors of worsted and one strand of lace weight yarn. The lace was a tonal gray and the worsteds would be light gray, dark gray and a slate blue. All by themselves, the colors coordinate and contrast perfectly. Everything was knitting up fine until I added the slate blue. Mixed with the grays, the blue became an uncoordinated, not enough contrast to see clearly yet glaringly different pile of weirdness.
|Frogging 3 yarns knit together|
And so I spent all night frogging the entire project. Yes, I spent the entire night frogging two worsteds and a lace weight yarn that had been knit simultaneously. The Entire night.
Just shoot me. Please!
And if I ever mention doing something similar, shoot me again. I beg you.
And yes, that is candy corn and a Christmas glass in the same photo. Don't judge. I LOVE my Christmas glass. My uncle gave me a set back when I was really way too young to appreciate receiving a set of glasses for Christmas. But he was no dummy. The glasses turned out to be my favorite thing to drink out of. Thirty-ish years later and I still drink out of them constantly. Thanks Uncle Hank! I just wish that once I took the glasses out of my hope chest, that I'd thought to tell you how much I love them.
