Unfinished Project the First
Oh Look, More Cotton
Bad Yarn, Bad Pattern Modifications
Ages and ages ago, a colleague gave me some unwanted yarn belonging to his wife and there was this fabulous red colour with enough to make a vest. So I cast on, and immediately despaired. The yarn was acrylic, which I'm not too much of a snob about generally, but this felt like it was made of plastic bags. Ugh. Plus I was using a pattern for a different yarn weight and my maths was clearly so very wrong in trying to work out what I was doing *laughs*
Good Yarn, Bad Pattern
Well, by "bad pattern" I really mean "not the right pattern". I took ages choosing a pattern for this gorgeous 100% silk yarn and I still love the look of the scroll lace, but together they didn't get very far. Also I made a weird mistake somewhere and couldn't for the life of me work out what had gone wrong! The yarn is still in my stash, waiting for just the right thing.
Nothing Wrong, I Just Wasn't Feeling It
Have You Ever Tried to Frog Mohair?
Final project that went no where - my Wisp. Lovely pattern, and I was using Rowan Kidsilk Haze (often known in blogging circles as Cracksilk Haze due to its addictive properties). I made a mistake somewhere along the line and tried to rip things back. And got in a bit of a tangle *laughs* After 4 repeats of the pattern, and 4 mistakes I got fed up ;)
