Make it Again Monday

One of the risks of knitting near bedtime is
goofing your color transition.
Yeah, I have to rip back to the second turquoise zig zag.
I was feeling like I was making friends with this hat
but all the time it was snickering behind my back.
I have to rip out and that should be a very fun time with the double stitches....
 And then there is the blanket, which is a fun challenge from Knit It Now,
the machine knitting website.
I was rocking with doing the 45* angle joins until I came to the very last one.

Let's just say that ripples didn't make this a lovely baby blanket at all.
I know it will have to be ripped out-not possible!
There are too many stitches and a pattern to find
 and I can do it....but do I want to?

Yes, it will be a question of starting over or making it over for both projects.

I will clean house, do laundry and go to quilting group first!

  2. I don't see anything wrong with your hat. Just keep going and finish it. :-) . That blanket, though. The blanket makes me cry at the thought of ripping it out. It's such a beautiful pattern.
    Have fun at quilting. I'm staying home today since I have no need to leave the house.

  3. Sometimes the knitting fates are just against us.
