OK. I have this Snuggly DK mint baby yarn that I bought a long time ago – more than 7 years ago. I bought it to start a baby blanket for my sister who was trying at the time for her second child Well, unfortunatly their marriage ended in divorce while I was knitting this blanket and I just put it away for a long time because it made me sad. In fact I gave up knitting for nearly 5 years. At some point I got out that old blanket and tried to finish it, but my gauage was totally different, or maybe it wasn’t even the same needles, and I no longer liked the pattern anymore anyways – bad vibes I guess. So I put the blanket away again but at least time I kept on clickin – partailly due to finding KH and being inspired to try things other than baby blankets. About a year ago I frogged the blanket and did some stuff to try and get the already knitted yarn to relax. In the meantime my sister remarried and I made a pretty blanket for their new baby. I know they want a second and believe she is trying again so this time I decided to knit that old yarn into something new for the hopefully coming baby. Well, I’ve knit nearly 2 balls (I have only 4 and 3/4 balls) and I can tell that I don’t have enough, that the blanket will be too skinny and look funny. Also, I like the pattern but the ‘bobbles’ don’t stay nice and puffed out, rather they disappear into the back which bugs me but I know I’ve made them right according to the pattern. So I’ve decide to frog it yet again.
So what’s up with this yarn? Can yarn be jinxed? Do I need to do an unjinxing ceremony? I’m sure all yarn yearns to be knitted into something beautiful – is the third time a charm? I’m tempted to just put it away again but feel sort of sad for the yarn. What to do?
