And knitting smacks me down…

So you’d be wondering, now that school is finished and I should have more time available for knitting and blogging about knitting, why it is that there is so little happening on my blog? That would be because I have been a victim of my own enthusiasm… There I was, merrily knitting and pleating my way down my Same Same cardi, looking forward to finishing the hem, so I thought I had better check the directions as to length etc… Now, where was I? pleats – ah, here it is, but wait… what’s that? **AT THE SAME TIME DO NOT FORGET THE WAIST SHAPING** Where was I supposed to do that? 3 inches ago???? Oh far out….

Pout. Sigh. Double check. Gaze upon my knitting. Frown. Look more closely – is that..? But the torso and the shoulders look a little different… Hold it to the sunlight… Oh dear. The second skein is lighter than the first.

Bleepity bleep bleep bleeeeeeep.

So there you have it. My Same Same is in the naughty corner until I can bring myself to re-examine it.

I’m swatching something purple instead now. That will teach it to misbehave.

    • And it should watch and see how good knitting behaves – like my lovely purple cotton/wool blend swatch, which is lovely and even and soft and good. That will show my Same Same what good knitting is! :>

  1. My sympathy Kate, nothing worse than being inches past some critical change in pattern, even worse to have a colour mismatch! Maybe in the dark of the corner some miraculous colour change will happen!!

    • Oh if only it were possible… I think perhaps the colour change may end up needing some assistance from me…. but not until after Christmas!!

  2. Purple fixes everything, or at least it takes me to a happy place where I find it easier to face up to disappointments🙂 Good Luck with the purple swatch behaving itself and that you find a solution you can live with for the Same Same cardigan. Best Wishes for a joyous Christmas Season and a year of knitting that behaves itself!
