Always, always write down why projects you’re working on.
Particularly when you run out of yarn and don’t know when you’ll buy more.
Particularly when it ends up being about 6 months between shopping trips.
Because you’ll probably forget what pattern you were working too. There’s a lot of lacy baktus scarf patterns around.
Lesson number 2? When you don’t know what pattern you’re using, put a lifeline in place so when you have to frog back it’s a bit easier.
And frog back I did. 4 times.
I really was ready to thrown the damn thing out the window. Perhaps use it as a mop, or leave it in a draw with velcro.
But I persevered and ended up finding this photo still on my phone.
So apologies to whoever created the pattern because I’ve lost all other evidence.
But I’ve finished the damn thing and now I don’t know what to do with it.
I really don’t like it.
It’s not something I would ever wear, and dear ol Mumsi took one look at it and declared it not to be her either.
So it will sit in the gift bin until someone deserving comes along.
It’s such a pretty yarn too (Moda Vera Beauvardia) and fortunately I have a lot left to make something that’s actually pretty.
