absentmindedkells: (feeling: oh god; wtf; other tales)
The wool has won. No fuzzy, yellow popcorn like baby blanket for this girl. Or rather none of that for my friend - I'm selling the wool to my mom who is making a baby blanket as well out of the devils yarn (hers is blue and white and looks amazing) and going to buy yarn I can work with. And make a less ambitious baby blanket. If I can that pattern I had was marked easy! Easy damnit!

(And the pattern called for that wool so - urgh.)

To Ravelry I go!

(My TARDIS scarf hit a brief road bump, but gramdma to the rescue! And then my knitting guru co-worker. And then my mom. This scarf is going to be a team effort :P. IDK I might stick to knitting cowls after this, my wham, bam, thank you lamb cowl turned out fine.

Lets be clear. This is not happy yarn. This is yarn from a fiery pit of hell. I have had to rip my baby blanket four times so far. I have placed three calls to my mother, saying “I hate this yarn” and twice I have cried during those phone calls (I cry when I get frustrated.) This blanket is not made with love, but with curses and tears. So I might keep it for me when I’m done (or give it to Ripley) and make my friend one that is made of sane wool, and not wool I have cried bitter, frustrated tears over.

I am not giving up however! Even if I drop stitches (again) or knot things and make my mother go; “All right hand over the scissors there is only one way to fix this.”

And today I am going to start an alternate project that is more straight kniting -I’m making a TARDIS scarf. And when that is done, I’m going to work on the blanket and also work on a fourth Doctor scarf for another pal. I have until June before the baby is born,and until June before it’s my pals birthday.


I shall knit on.
