So I'm accidentally knitting a sweater.
Really! Uh so I started knitting the Daelyn Pullover months ago, but the short rows at the neck back defeated me. Seriously, I tried it 3 times and by the end of it my pride had gotten involved, there was tears, and a rage-filled scream when I threw the last attempt into a corner and literally stomped on it.
But I don't think I'm good at failure when it comes to knitting. It nagged at me at the back of my mind, and I didn't understand why I couldn't get the short-rows to work.
So while packing for my trip to Vancouver at the beginning of March, I stuck a ball of yarn, needles, and the Daelyn pattern in my suitcase. After finishing my toque, it was the only project I had on-hand for the trip back home. I pulled it out while waiting for my flight and worked my way through the short rows.
I was SO PROUD when I finished that section! I happily continued knitting on the flight home. Then continued to knit it at home. And then before I knew it, I was separating the sleeves and continuing down the body.
You may not believe me, but it only hit me then that I was actually knitting another sweater. Hehe, oops.
I only have...erm, 3 other sweaters on the needles? But one of them is being ripped up because I don't like the fabric, so lets say only 2 others.
Tops Tees and Tanks KAL over at Very Shannon. Erm, sweater number 4 (5?) anyone? :D
