i just can’t win: there’s always something wrong with my knitted projects. this time, it’s realizing i had been using the wrong pattern, as i started the last color stripe. this was supposed to be a baby blanket for my new nephew, but it’s more like a rug.
and how did i manage to mess this project up? i’m blaming purl for this one. i bought the kit, and the insert that came in the kit directed me to the super easy crib blanket in worsted twist page, so i did the pattern on that page. what i didn’t realize was i actually bought the super soft merino yarn kit, which meant i should have followed a link buried in a paragraph of text halfway down the page, to get to the pattern for the super easy crib blanket in super soft merino. goddammit, purl.
there was no way i was going to frog the whole damn thing and start over. sorry baby carl, you got a rug, instead of a blanket. you probably won’t be a big fan of pink, so i guess it’s ok (the pink was peach in the photo in the purl store. grrrrrrr).
i really should quit this knitting thing. but it’s the only time i watch tee-vee shows, and i’m still itching to work on a super blanket.
