Anywho, the last couple of weeks, the cognitive difficulties I've been experiencing for the past couple of years has become worse. I was knitting away on the Lake Country Throw and all of a sudden, I couldn't remember what to do next. I sat there looking at the needles and yarn feeling as if it was the first time I'd ever picked them up. I kept thinking and concentrating. Trying to figure out what to do next. When I finally started again, I messed everything up. But, of course! I ended up having to pull out several rows and ended up stopping it at a place that I'm not sure exactly how to pick it back up. I'm terribly afraid I'm going to have to frog the whole thing and start all over.
Lake Country Throw before my mix up
Completed Steelers Scoreboard 2015-2016 season
I enjoyed it so much I decided to do another one (there are four of us in our family that would wear them) and also planned to do one for the Tarheels season. When I went to start the new one I found out why it turned out so big. I'd used the wrong size needles! Yep, I have NO IDEA how I ended up doing that but it's what happened.
Anyway, I procured the correct size needles and started working on my Tarheel Scoreboard (the 2.0 version). Unfortunately, I ran into the same problem I had with my LCT above. So, I frogged it (hadn't even finished knitting the first game) and am planning to start again. I've decided to order the recommended yarn (which I didn't use for the Steelers Scoreboard, nor for the Tarheel Scoreboard) so that should help with size issues, etc.
While I wait for the yarn, I'll keep recording the scores and go back to working on the LCT. I guess all I can do is to keep trying. I've become very proficient in balancing my kindle while knitting so I can watch you tube videos to help when I get stuck. Somehow, I'll figure it out. (fingers crossed!)
Well, that's what is happening around here. Do you have any projects going on? Yarn related or otherwise? I'd love to hear about them.
thanks for stopping by!
