when winding up is winding down

cheap clomid for sale cowls are notoriously tricky.

http://pitterpatterpetsitter.com/embed/5rCQJmVaQpg there’s too small, just right, too big,

dating a girl who once dated agirl i’ve been working on this cowl for a couple of weeks now.IMG_5618crop

it wasn’t until i wove in the ends this morning,

that the proverbial light bulb went off in my head.

this is not wool.

which i knew all along and is significant because

when i swatched at the begining, i calculated the # of sts to co

based on the swatch stretched out (my cheater’s version of blocked).

since i’ve planned this all along as a spring to very early fall piece,

 i chose a silk cotton blend.  intentionally.

the faux pas is that only when trying it on for the first time

did i discover my mistake.

so, instead of ‘just right’ i have too long to be a single loop

and too short to be doubled.  sigh.

now i’ll have to keep

my eyes open for a friend who likes their cowls this length (because some people do)

then this can become a well loved gift

and i can have another go,

a fresh start with

new #’s.

my cowl is still coming,

just a little a later than i thought.

file this under: live and try to learn to pay more attention from the get go.

  1. Hmmmmm…… could you lap over the end that hangs in front, and pin it in place? Not sure what I mean is clear. I’ve seen cowls worn this way, to the side a bit, or straight down. It’s such a gorgeous colour! It will look beautiful on you!

    • currently i just feel disappointed. my own fault, but it’s not what i wanted it to be. the cowl is worked in the diagonal, so hitching it up somehow is tricky, but in a week or so when i can look with more neutrality at it, i’ll take another look. the color is fab and i love the stitches. i know it would make a great gift, i just need to try again at some point for what i was aiming for. you know?

      • I do know what you mean. Give it a time-out, and then give it another look. 🙂 It’s such a pretty piece, I hope you keep it for yourself. Not that giving it away isn’t lovely! I’m sure a solution will come along. Hope so! Hugs from me to you!
