Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...
Wednesday, May 23, 2007
So, this post was going to be about how I finished Kate Gilbert's totally cute strawberry clutch from Knitscene, which I spent ALL day on.....

But it looks like crap. Half-felted crap. That BS they feed you about "felting away any discrepancies in gauge"? TOTAL CRAP. "Just whipstitch around the edges"? BIG HOLES. ugh.

It's really discouraging because everything I knit lately seems to be really awful. That's what i get for thinking I'm a semi-skilled knitter, huh?

From now on, stockinette socks. we'll see how I can bungle those up.

***this post brought to you by a cranky girl who's eaten only leftover chocolate cake today, due to the all-day-knitting. your usual cheery blogging will resume shortly. I hope...***
pshhah! you are very skilled! come on violet! i'm sure you're clutch looks just fine. i look up to you as a knitter. you've helped and taught me lots of stuff and i am very grateful! i hope you feel better.
