This is a picture of Julie who so kindly shared her beautiful yarn with me. I bought this yarn at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival years ago. It is from Ideuma Creek Alpaca Farm. Each skein comes with a cute picture of the alpaca who is sharing her yarn. Julie is a total cutie don't you think?
When I finished the circle I casted on the back, easy cast on 60 stitches, knit for 13 inches and you are done. So I did it but added an extra inch because I am pretty tall. I single crocheted them together and put it on....well you can only imagine how horrible it was because my circle is way and I mean way bigger than it is supposed to be. Okay, don't panic just take apart the bind off edge, pick up the stitches and knit some more. So I did, then I made it way and I mean way too long. So I took it out again and finally after wrestling with fibers sticking together, knots and a vest that I know deep down inside is not going to work, I gave up.
Now I have this......a big circle that I have no idea what to do with. It is too stretchy, and too mushy, and well just too everything to fix. I am putting it in time out, just like the dress and it is going to sit there until I can figure out what to do with it.
I guess I am happy that I didn't spend a fortune on yarn, I learned how to do this cool fan and I loved the yarn in my hands. Look, I am trying to find the bright side of this disaster.
Hope your projects are going better than mine!
