The story doesn't end there...later that night I was reading a craft mag in bed and started reading an article about 3 women who earn a living with their crafts. One question was asked of all there', 'Have you ever had any crafting disasters?'. They all said yes but 2 made a similar observation...'The important thing is how you handle the disappointment of something going wrong' ... and I thought how true!
This is one of my 'Chevron No-brainer' Throws. Someone actually paid me money for this one!
The rug I was working on was not for any particular person. I was just trying to get a little stockpile of rugs so if a raffle prize is needed or someone is having a traumatic time and need cheering up...well I had some throws in reserve. I still have one spare so that's not too bad. With the hotter weather coming I'm going to knit some 'kite shapes' to sew into a rug next winter or so. As well,on the 'Jimmy Beans' webpage they have some great projects called 'scarves into throws' where you knit a number of narrow rectangles and then stitch them into a throw. These projects avoid the heat of knitting throws in summer.
PS still don't really know what happened yesterday; it could have been carelessness and I dropped some stitches...time to move on and work on something else while the cat get's used to his new rug! lol
