You Just Wanna Rip It Out


Your mistakes I mean, not your hair. At first, I wasn't going to rip back to fixSomewhat Cowl 008 this one, it seemed silly. Then I realized I had made the increases too soon anyways. What you are seeing are two sides of the Somewhat Cowl, one that I did correctly, and the other (on the right side) where I made a mistake. Just increased a stitch before I should have. Ugh. Good thing I had to frog it, it would have bothered me later. So, I ripped back using a lifeline, and have to knit like 5 inches of boooooring stockinette. Actually, I think I only have like 3 left. And although I am loving this sweater, I suddenly feel the urge to toss it aside! Because I just got in the most SCRUMPTIOUS yarn ever! Actually, I just bought three sweaters worth of yarn, some Knit One Crochet Too Angora Soft (10 balls for $12.50!) and 7 balls of Lang Yarns Venezia from Webs. I had a gift certificate.

Swatching for ButtonyWhat I am talking about though, is some destash yarn I got from Mouse. OMG. It is yummy. It's Filatura Di Crosa Luna, 10 whole balls. I just want to cast it on right now. After squeezing it, and smelling it, I had to swatch it. Then I did some math, I am going to make the Buttony Sweater, which is hardly a pattern to begin with. There is no gauge, no real measurements or stitch counts. I used one of my favorite shirts as a guide, taking the tip from Knitting Daily. As a bonus, it has raglan style sleeves.

Anyways, here are some fun pictures of a sock bag I bought and the other yarns.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
