Today is not a good day. A good day is when my knitting is working out. Today it’s not. My BlueV, an attempt at a summer weight cardigan with eyelets is going to sit in the time-out corner. I tried once, twice, even three times.
The first time it was a knit forward, rip back project as you can see. But was I deterred? NO.
I checked it again and found math errors so I tried it with different wool and a brighter colour to encourage me.
This one seems to work so I turned back to the BlueV but it’s still no good.
Are there any tear stains visible? I’m done with this one for now. We are through!
The red one has a chance of a revival though. I do love red and it’s behaving and trying to please me. We haven’t come to the Great Divide where the truth lies so I’m not getting too excited yet. My optimism is a little dented.
I’m going to take some time-out myself and knit some hats. Hats are reliable. Hats want to fit. Hats and I get along great. These are my Any Gauge Two Triangle Hats. Dive into your stash and cast on. NO SWATCHING!!
Hats, love them. How are your knitting projects going?

I have shawl in the time out corner. I do entirely understand.
But hats are an ego saver. They’re fun, easy and quick projects. They use up bits and bobs of yarn. They will fit somebody somewhere. They are wonderful donation projects.
And thus, they restore confidence in my knitting ability!
