I hate making mistakes Part 2: …but

First I have to say thank you to all those who have liked and commented on my previous post.  Also thank you to those who have started following my blog.

I’ve gotten behind on checking out every ones blogs and I didn’t want you guys to think I didn’t care.

As I mentioned in my previous post,  I hate making mistakes.  It seems once you start ripping back to fix the error it just gets worse and worse until sometimes it’s better to just start over.

But I had put so much time into it already and I didn’t want to start from scratch. So 4 rip backs later, I was back to the garter stitch section and annoyed. The more I tried to fix it the worse it got. Three life lines later and finally I’m back to where I was before I dropped a m1L.


The upside to the errors is that finally I have learned how to fix a dropped m1L and a dropped m1r. So yes, I hate making mistakes but, at least I learn from them AND how to fix them if I make it again.


Lifelines don’t hurt either.

I hate making mistakes

Once I got my order in, I was quite eager to get started on the whole reason behind the order. Viajante. It’s a wrap/shawl piece. All knit stitches. Started flat but then joined to work in the round. It’s beautiful. Can be modified to fit your height and size. And doesn’t require a shawl pin to stay on your shoulders.


Having an event to go to coming up I was determined to have the item complete by October. Things were going well. But then when I attached the Turmeric/gold I hit a snag and got a hole at the center spine.


So I ripped back to the Shoal/green. I thought I had fixed the problem but, then that same hole turned up in the green. So I just pulled the needles out. I’m going to rip back to where I joined to knit in the round and hopefully this will fix the problem.

I want this to be perfect.
