Yarn fail….

I have been knitting but it’s been slow going.  I ripped out the Rose Tyler cabled mittens 3 times and finally gave up.

I cast on Knitty.com’s Fetching.  While it was an easy pattern, I found that it just looks way too sloppy.  The method for the thumb is also really inconvenient.

A friend came over and we spent a great few hours knitting and watching classic Doctor Who.  I finished one mitt out of a pair using a modified Voodoo pattern.  He nearly finished a mitt of his own.

I made Tua Cha a couple years ago and I recently cast that on once again.  I realize I’ve become FAR too much of a perfectionist and ripped this out already once.

I am knitting a cute little scarf out of sock yarn for my newly acquired bowling pin.  That’s actually not giving me a hard time at all.  Simple garter stitch on size 2 needles.   I need to figure out a pattern for a cute little Santa hat for him too.  I had named him Wilson, but was told I can’t name him that, as that’s the name of the volleyball in the Tom Hank’s movie.  I’m open to suggestions as to a new name.

I’ll eventually get something finished.  Until then, I’m still playing with yarn.

  1. Kerri! That was the whole point that “Wilson” was from the movie! All inanimate friends are named Wilson 😉

  2. My vote is Pinfold.
