This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

Doomsday Cardi!

Normally today would again be Wordless Wednesday, but that’s not happening today so bare with me.  No gym either because it was a hassle with the car situation, and my hips were better but not 100%.

Right now I’m watching An American Werewolf in London, and dreading what is about to come. Just keep reading… you’ll see what I mean.

Now, on to Doomsday. Isn’t it pretty?

Now lets see what I saw last night…

Oops.

Yes, those are mistakes.

Now, I’m sure I’m the only one would 1)would notice and 2) would care.

But I care. I care a lot. This is the cardigan I am supposed to get married in. If I don’t fix it, I’ll know. I’ll think about it. I’ll hate it.

Yes, there is also the problem that if I keep having to redo this, I’ll end up hating it by the time it is finished. But that, is a chance I’m willing to take.

I’ve got enough time that I’m not freaking out. I’m also getting pretty good at knitting it quickly.  I just need to make sure I remember to pay attention and not accidentally cross my cables the wrong way.

It’s off the needles and on a strand of yarn, I’ll frog that when I finally need that yarn.

Today I’m going to cast on again.

But right now… I’m going to make pizza for lunch and eat the custard I made this morning.

No, I’m not actually upset about this. Frustrated and disappointed… But not upset.  I’ll get it right eventually.

  1. I know what you mean. You need it to be perfect. And as long as you have plenty of time and don’t have to knit through the night to get it done, then I think you’re doing the right thing. Good luck for the next attempt!

    • Yes, I’ve got plenty of time. And now that I’ve figured out the whole center piece / gifts for the wedding party, that require very minimal work on my part, that’s one more bit of my time allotment for the wedding that I’ve got.
