I’ve ripped back the last few rows of the cardigan several times now. Part of me is thinking of cutting my losses and starting the sweater over with a different yarn that is closer to the yarn used in the original pattern. My problems arise from the texture of the linen. It’s very difficult to see the pattern and very easy to get ‘lost’. I’m not going to frog it at this point, just set it aside and try out this other yarn a see if it works better.
And Pioggia you are absolutely right that this is my hobby and it shouldn’t stress me out. :).
Yeah, I have a few unfinished things that frustrated me so I set them aside. I am ashamed to confess that when that happens I seldom pick them up again.
That’s what I’m afraid of with this pattern/yarn. I haven’t knit much in three weeks and I think it’s my frustration. Time for a pair of socks or a baby sweater perhaps?
Time to switch indeed. I would do the socks, but remember there’s always risk of the second sock syndrome.
