those projects you haven’t seen lately…

I decided to frog the hoodie. The yarn really wasn’t playing nice with the pattern and I felt like I was going to be disappointed with the finished product. I am going to try it again with yarn that was recommended by the pattern: mohair.

As for the Lillehammer hat, It came out HUGE; way bigger than I anticipated. My guage was right, too. I don’t know what happened, but it’s quite disappointing because Ryan really wants that hat. Ryan doesn’t usually “really want” knitted things, so I have to take this chance to knit something for him while I can. Maybe after I recover from the trauma of knitting almost the whole thing and then having to frog, I will try it again.

About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.
