ripping, ripping, ripping

It’s been a rather unproductive long weekend. I started a crochet sunhat out of a single skein of Euroflax linen, only to have to rip it out about five times because it sucked!

The beginning went okay.

crappy hat

Too big.

Too ruffley.


Too small!

I think I might fiiiinally have hit on the right combo. Needs a wash, then we’ll see. My knitting hasn’t really been behaving either – I had an idea that I tried to sketch and swatch out, but I don’t think I can actually do it except for at full size (and the swatches didn’t look very good either). And I’ve been working on a cabled pullover with lovely O-Wool Legacy DK, but I’ve had to rip out the back a bunch of times too!

finally on track

I think I’m finally back on track. Of course, with this heatwave (40C/100F with humidex!) I might just make a few more batches of ice cream instead of knitting.

    Bummer about all the ripping. The pullover looks great so far, though!

    Ripping to get it right is part of my game. I suppose it happens to better knitters than I. I hope it’s right this time.
