This week, I have been working on a new cowl design, it’s called Arctic Ice. It has been knitting up quite quickly and then, to my utter dismay, I noticed I had knitted 4 instead of 3 plain rounds in one of the sections so I had to pull back… This yarn has a small amount of mohair in it, when I say small, I mean, well, when one tries to pull back mohair it kind of mats together and takes years off your life in the process because you can’t really see where you are and then you could have possibly lost stitches etc…I still love it tremendously, it’s so gorgeously soft and wonderful to wear and I want more of it!
I removed my circular needles and had 200 live stitches just lying there staring at me. Of course I wanted this situation sorted out as quickly as possible, (my nerves). I pulled back really carefully, the mohair wasn’t too accommodating at first and then it relented and allowed me to pull back to the exact spot I needed to, much to my relief! I am now knitting the final few rounds and when it’s finished there will be a test knit on my Ravelry group. I love test knits, they are so much fun!
Happy Wednesday, joining with Ginny🙂
