FINE. Everyone on the internet is right. I have to rip it out. *storms off in a snit*
I actually took the whole mess to my knitting group for some ripping moral support. Because noone should rip out that much knitting without some backup.
|And I wonder why my knitting is always covered in dog fur.|
But then I hit a bit of a snag in that my stitch count was off and I had to fudge some things. Seems that knitting in a snit and wine don't mix even if it's just basic garter stitch. Good to know. The payoff was worth it, though:
|Not even two stripes in and already it's clear...|
I seriously love it. And I"m almost back to the magical place of being back to where I was before I started ripping... and I can't wait to see what the next part with all 3 colors looks like:
|Must. Knit. Faster.|
Thank you so much for bringing me back to my senses. It's never worth it to put this much effort in and not have it be amazing.
|I think this qualifies.|
