Well I have frogged … badly. :grrr:
I’ve been working on this one blankie for a rescue dog and I have started it over at LEAST 5 times … tonight I was moving right along, knit a row, purl a row, knit a row … I’m using Softee Chunky and 8-9 mm needles (the border knit part was done on 8’s and I switched to 9’s when I misplaced my 8!) … :??
Well, I noticed a [color=blue]HOLE!!! A HOLE!! where there should NOT BE A HOLE!!! [/color]AGGHHH … I think I lost about four stitches “somewhere out there” … what a royal pain in the … :!!!:
Not sure if you are aware I fractured my hand badly about three weeks ago thanks to my Bullmastiff (pictured) who looks calm but is actually going to die a nervous wreck according to my husband … she spooked and bolted when some idiot in a bald tire car skidded away from a stop sign on ice … down I went onto the icy sidewalk … I’m not sure if this HOLE was caused due to my hand and inability to hang onto the needles properly, or if my stitches are just too loose … :verysad:
Tell me … is it easier to knit on smaller needles with smaller yarn? I’m just worried I may never get anything finished but perhaps it’s just that my choices in yarn and needles are not what I need for my first project … scarves in wooly fuzzy type yarn like Boa, Shaunsheep and eyelash I can do great on 9-10 mm but they hide a multitude of sins plus how can you screw up 14 stitches? … I shouldn’t ask that because before long I’m sure I will have found out how!!! :oops:
Assistance please … at this rate I will never get my stash narrowed down!!! AGGHHHHHHH !!! :-x
