|Unraveling hours of work is no fun...|
This bird shawl has been nothing but annoying and time consuming frustration. Bad pattern, overpriced kit and smelly yarn.
|Some of the reason for unraveling..|
I must admit that knitting such a project demands some experience that I did not have.
I mean, I knit a lot, but had never knitted a shawl like this.
And without a proper pattern - I could only go wrong.
|This is how far I got before unraveling.|
All errors and frustration is gone. Starting for the last time on it - and hope to be finished by autumn...
So much easier now. So much more hope now. But were I got the patience from is a mystery. Usually I do not work so much on a project that seems to go nowhere. But it is the birds.
|Planing, counting and ready to unravel the last bit of it.|
And this time there is hope in every stitch. I will not surrender. I will not give up. Not yet, anyway... And the credit for making this: I am taking it all!!! And I hope I can cope with the stinky spinning oil smell - it is intense..
|Starting all over again seems much better and now I have the tools and the experience..|
