well, of course, rippping out your project completely or partially is something we want to avoid. But you can not help it in a lot of cases. Well, then, so it is. I knit for fun and not on a stressy schedule of dead lines so I can live with the delay. But there is one thing that gets me stressed:
When you rip out more than like one row… you have a lot of “extra” yarn. you may leave it on the couch just lose or recoil it. Either way: When knitting on with this yarn you have a perfect gage of when you get to the point that you were at when ripping out. It tells you SO well, how much you had to undo… and untill I am over that point I can not relax.
Lately I pulled out the entire bottom of a shirt and had a coil and a half to work up against. (170 m to 50g!), now I want to do anything but ripping out for a while.
How do you feel about the “catching up with yourself” part?
