Not every project works out as planned and it is annoying when you spend good money on supplies. I will probably end up using this as a gift, so not a total loss. I did enjoy the methodical repeat of the motif, but I didn't like the way the pattern was written, there were areas that could have been clearer. Patterns for purchase should be extremely clear, accurate and able to be followed by knitters not familiar with the designers patterns. A simple line stating which rows made up the pattern repeat would have cleared up much of the confusions. (there were lots of comments on this pattern on Ravelry from people who found the pattern unclear).
Now I get to ponder my next knitting project, though I will try and restrict myself to the two that have been partly completed and then stashed away and almost forgotten. I have far too many of those and it does bother me that they are languishing. This is the point where I need a big nudge to get me working on one of them and keep me from the lure of a shiny need project.
I am curious, do you have unfinished projects hiding out or are you one of those people I admire who seeing projects through to completion before starting another.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
