Last Christmas when we were at a party in Santa Monica I took the opportunity to visit Wild Fiber. I didn't really have a plan as to what I wanted to buy until the night before. It seems every Christmas when I attend business parties, I end up wishing for a dressy wrap for the cool evenings. So, yet again, I think of these things when I need them instead of way before.
I also like to challenge myself with something a little more difficult in each project, for the most part. So, I chose this beautiful, soft lace wrap by Blue Sky Alpacas. It's called the Rectangle Shawl. It has a 10 row pattern and seems fairly simple.
I bought this beautiful yarn by Twisted Sisters. It is Petite Voodoo a silk and merino wool blend that is slightly variegated.
I started it in March, I think. And this is only as far as I have gotten. I have had to start over several times. I think I've taken out more than I've knitted. You can see a problem here that I had to go back to. For some reason, I just can't seem to stop making mistakes no matter how careful I think I am. I am very frustrated. At this rate, it won't be finished till Christmas of 2010.
Maybe I should put it down and work on something else. But then, it really won't get finished by Christmas. Maybe I should go work on socks that I started and never finished. This really isn't a habit of mine, really it isn't! Really. Are you a quitter or do you stick with it till it's finished?
