Sigh. You may be asking yourself as to why anyone would keep doing this to themselves. I’ve wondered the same thing myself. Finishing this project is now a challenge that I mean to over come! As of October 1st, I will have been working on this project (off and on, to be sure) for a whole year. So, WHY did I frog so much this time? Well, let me tell you. Being super happy with the progress made, I took a moment to straighten out the blanket to admire my work. At which time I noticed that there were several places where the Natural colored yarn actually changed color.
If you look closely you can just see it in the photos. I can assure you it was much more obvious in real life. At first I only saw the one large area. I thought I could just pick up the stitches below the patch, only frogging down to that point. After picking up all the stitches in that row, I noticed the two smaller patches down below. All the way down to the bottom on the center panel. :’-( Guess what I figured out? The original pale color wasn’t the same pale color that I ordered when I was started-over on the second one. GAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! It has all been removed and THROWN AWAY!
So close to being done with the quilting part (again). Just a few more lines of border to go. Then the binding and a label is all it needs to get it into the FO pile. Whoop-Whoop!
If you have been here for awhile, you probably know that I am a member of Team Red White & Blue. Our local group does a Friday morning run. This past Friday was a beautiful morning. It is amazing to watch the sun come up with the fog laying along the ground. As I looked out over the field of fog I saw something that I had never even heard of. A rainbow bubble that followed along with us as we were running. This magic has to do with the sunlight refracting around us onto the fog. It was a wonderful start to the day. Quickly followed up with a yummy blueberrry/lemon scone and dirty chai from Isaac’s before heading into work. 😉
These beautiful socks were NOT made by me. They were made by my wonderful friend DSH of La Tejedora Crafts.
I had commissioned her to make them for me to give to my friend at work. She does amazing work! Thank you DSH!!
