The past two days I have done barely anything but knit. You see, I gathered beautiful yarns, chose a pattern and began a blanket long ago. Wanting the blanket to be larger than the intended size I chose to expand it. Well...that didn't go as planned and it turned out really funky and left me feeling majorly bummed. Hours and hours were poured into that blanket and I have this mental checklist of wanting to make a knit blanket and a quilt for each of our children, so I was really disappointed in myself for having jacked it up. Granted, it was my first time knitting a blanket, but still, so although I didn't have money for any new yarn, I did have some in my stash and some leftover from the first attempt, so I started a new one before bed Sunday night and have been knitting like wild. We'll see if the baby or the completed blanket is here first! Other than that I have knit up some little hats and also pulled out my stash of knit baby legs and a little sweater I made before baby was ever in utero. I was so excited to pull these things out and see that I do have a little stash of hand-knits ready to go for our little fall baby. I can't want to get her all snuggled up in them and to know I was able to create them on my own, just for her.
Have you ever had a project go majorly wrong and feel you must redeem yourself with a re-do? I'd love to hear your stories.
