The hoop was hanging up, empty, for a few years (!!!) so nice finally have it filled. I think it looks pretty cute on my wall next to the be positive one that I made awhile back. They are a bright and cheery part of my sewing room!mistake stitch scarf this week! This project has quite a story behind it. Originally, I used this yarn to knit a honey cowl, which I had completed. Despite the fact that I knit the long version of the cowl, and added 20 stitches, the cowl didn't fit to my liking. It wasn't quite long enough to double up comfortably. I debated for a few days on what to do about it, and I decided to frog the cowl (rip it all out) and start all over. My husband gets a little bit freaked out about this, because he hates seeing all that time go down the drain, so I frogged it in secret. I figured he didn't need to worry about it. A few days later, I was knitting on the scarf at dinner with some friends, and my husband observed out loud (to our friend) that the yarn was all kinked up, so it must have been knit into some other object previously. I was flabbergasted. I had no idea he paid that much attention. (hahaha!) It was equal parts funny and surprising. In the end, I'm glad I reworked the yarn. I'd much rather have an object that will be worn and used than a project that isn't quite right. Besides, I got to enjoy the yarn twice! :)
