hear me out

I ripped this.

C’mon now, before you start yelling, remember the title of the post… Yes, I know it’s a tiiiiny newborn pullover. Yes, I know it’s so cuuuute. Yes, I have seen that adorable neckline. Yes, I agree that baby raglan sleeves are the most precious thing ever.

So what’s my excuse? The pooling is fugly.

I tried and tried and tried to like it but once I got to the sleeves and on top of everything it changed too, I couldn’t stand it anymore. The yarn is nice, the pattern is great, but it’s a waste of two good things to try to put them together.

Please don’t yell? The good thing is, I now know my gauge on this yarn extremely accurately (talk about a big swatch! :D) and I think I like the way it looks on smaller circumferences (e.g. the sleeve) better, so that gives me good ideas for what to actually use it for (i.e. I’m thinking socks).

Ok, I’ll go crawl in my hole now, if you still feel like yelling… Go ahead.

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. :) I know it, the feeling when you know you absolutely have to frog something no matter what. It’s not like you wasted the yarn, you’ll use it for something else so… no harm done.

  2. What a bummer! You’re right though, there is something funky going on with the color changes. Best to just try again and use this yarn elsewhere. You’ll feel much better about it. What color are you going for this time?

    • Well, I actually only started making this because I felt inspired by the yarn, and it was for some hypothetical baby that would come along some day – so I’m not in a rush to start over again immediately. That’s the other good thing! :)

  3. I agree with the sock idea. The yarn is gorgeous, but I’m not sure such a good fit with the pattern. I won’t yell at you – I do this stuff all the time! :-)
