One of the worst things ever after completing something, patting yourself on the back for job well done is when you set your work down and admire it for a bit before weaving in your ends...and you find this:
At first it just looked like it was slightly off, no big deal. And then I moved it around a bit and, no..no it can't be. But yes, it was. Fortunately this yarn is a stubborn one which is what frustrated me about it the first time I tried frogging it and failed horribly, and cried a bit about it because this yarn is delicious. If it weren't a stubborn yarn, this would have ended in tears. So, I took out my needle, and in a calm manner I carefully stitched it up, and no one (except myself, the internet, and everyone that compliments me on this) will know. Everything is fine, I can't even tell where it was now. I would've loved it even if I could. It's perfect.
Yarn: Chiffon by Yarn Chef
I looooove this! I love it more than my black one, it's just so soft. I adore this yarn so much, I adore Yarn Chef definitely check her out. Even though it barely weighs anything, it's quite warm. I can't wait to wear it today, I was so excited about it I worked an outfit around it. I'm not sure if I'll wear it any other way but as a scarf, so I haven't added any buttons, but if I wanted to wear it as a capelet I'll probably end up just using a shawl pin. I can't seem to find any buttons that wouldn't pull and distort it. But I do love a good button hunt.
I'm not really a hood person either, but because it's so light, I might give it a try. It just seems a little tedious to do the whole ribbon thing up the back. We'll see.
This has really helped me not go crazy by overthinking things. It's a simple pattern, but it still needs a little bit of attention, and every few rows I would stop and stare at it a bit, pet it a bit, and generally admire it.
I'm sad it's over. But I've already added this pattern to my knit-list for Christmas gifts, so I'll revisit it when I finish up some other things. I could probably make the same thing three times in a row, but it can't be too healthy.
