Look what I´ve got:
You want to take a bite?? Go ahead, here´s some whipped cream to go with it……..delicious, right?!
This is Classic Elite Montera, it´s lovely. I used it for the hat and fingerless gloves in my last post. I only have six skeins left, none in the same color, each color is gorgeous in it´s own way. But since I only have one skein each I feel I have to save them for something extra special, can´t waste so much as an inch.
Talking about wasting:
Yes, it has been cut through no less than 8 strings! My heart stopped beating for a second when I noticed! I got a confession and my son knows when he is old enough to work he will buy me a skein of some glorious yarn.
I am so not looking forward to working the ends together when I start knitting with this, what a waste of yarn!!! Makes me want to cry just thinking about it!
And talking about wasting ……….knitting up something with one of my favorite yarns, Kambgarn, I noticed a mistake and started ripping. And ripping. Only to realize the mistake wasn´t that far down and I had frogged way too much. frustration hit me, I really don´t have the time for this!!
Soon after picking up (from almost the beginning!!!) an awesome idea came to me that changed my previous ideas about the final look. I am so happy about the way it is turning out, and much happier with the new idea than I was with the old one. So this time, frogging was not a waste of time but a blessing in disguise.
