I bet you know what I mean.
I was very happy with myself, setting in a bookstore, early in the morning , with a cup of coffee and my new knitting mag. I bought this specific one because I had been flipping through and there was a lovely picture of a beautiful women in a field with a dreamy sweater on. Everything was perfect, her hair, the field, flowers and of course especially the sweater.
Over the next several weeks I picked up the mag and kept looking at the sweater. Well this lead to me buying everything I needed to make it online (this was Fall of 2000, yes I am ashamed to tell you this).
Over the years of knitting, I have pulled this sweater out and worked on it, first the pattern was confusing, then I decided it needed ribbed cuffs, because wind would blow up my sleeves, and if I was going to have ribbed cuffs I needed a higher collar.
Yes, since you are probably a knitter you can see where this is going, I ran out of yarn, bought more, not the right color, got a contrasting color. No that's not right either.
It has taken me almost exactly 7 years, but I have finally decided to frog the whole thing. http://www.joslynsfiberfarm.com/pyramid.htm
Now I am on a quest of what I can do with this lovely yarn, as the pattern called for alternating rows of many colors.
Spell broken? Or was it the yarn instead of the sweater that I fell in love with?
Time to rejoice and begin again..
Oh joyfully we frog
while sitting on a log
with one faithful dog
in the middle of a bog
oh here comes the fog....
Stand back..I have needles and I'm not afraid to use them!
