|Watch Winder by SMStudio|
I thought I had it down. I was increasing every third row, but I didn't notice until it was WAY too late that I was creating a giant ruffle. Alas, frogging was the only option. Boy am I glad I bought a ball winder this past summer!
I am not sure why I am not working directly from a pattern to learn technique, but this is the path I am most comfortable with. I guess it will also teach me about how to create different movement in the fabric, so this may turn out to be a good thing.
The choice to work with the cheaper yarn may have been the best decision so far. I am less fearful of making a mess with it or "wasting it". It is also has less of an aura then what I had chosen before so I can see what I am doing. I guess I will never be one of those people who gets a kick out of using gorgeous expensive yarn. I am too afraid of ruining it. Probably why all that LYS stuff sits unused in my craft room while I work with the cheap stuff.
Hopefully, by my next post, I will be beginning to work on the final project idea so I can FINALLY share what all the fuss is about.
