January is turning out to be a bad month for my knitting productivity. I seem to be making bad choices with my yarn/pattern combos. I'm packing up my life here in Korea and have a stash of yarn to use up. I hoped to have a bunch of gifts knit to bring home to my family but it seems every new project I start gets FROGGED!!!!! This easy crocheted scarf from Berroco (free scarf pattern) looks really nice in purple and on the model in the picture...knit in a light pink colour is was hideous:( I also tried to make another cable hat, but slightly smaller than the one I made for Phil(that he LOST already! grrrrr), for a friend and it turned out toooooooo small. I knit it in the same light pink colour as the Berroco scarf, still don't like the colour...I'm getting the feeling anything knit in this colour is going to be a reject. That's probably why it was on sale!! Too bad, it is so nice and soft, organic too.
Back to the drawing(knitting)board! I hope I have something exciting to share next time.
