Having fun is not translating into beautiful knitting for me this year. I've had a couple of flops this year, and oh look! I've made another.
Pattern: Pale but Proud, Knitters 1992
Yarn: Bernat Soy Naturals
Yes, I had fun knitting it. If it's only about process, then this project was a success. But I do like to have a nice product too. Excited at the prospect of knitting this pattern, I took a moment last weekend to pick up some yarn from Michaels. I wanted something with natural fibers, that would look slightly elegant. I must have been tired because I chose entirely the wrong yarn for this project.
Soy fibers felt, so I can never use it as a wash cloth. It's too clunky too look elegant.
In my enthusiasm I thought I'd make two cloths so I bought two balls of the yarn, in different colors. But one ball wasn't enough to make even one cloth, and since I already knew this project was a dud, I just carried on with the other ball. I think it gives it an old fashioned, country styling that just isn't my cup of tea.
The cloth fits nice over the stool we keep by the phone. Oh, the phone's ringing. Grandma called, and she wants her doily back.
The stool does show off the pattern nicely.
What else could I do with this thing? It's not a dog coat.
It's not a hat.
Any one want a piece of ridiculous knitting? Free to a good home.
