Current WIP count: 7
I am a dingbat. We all knew this anyway, but at the weekend I got even more proof.
The boyfriend asked about Roses for Grandma, so I laid out the squares I had made so far to give him an idea of how it will look.
As I was explaining, I noticed that some squares were more ruffly than others. Thinking maybe I had used a different sized hook, I picked up a ruffled and an unruffled square to compare them, and realised that one was a whole round smaller than the other.
I checked the others and yes, I had reached the penultimate round, somehow skipped over the last part of the pattern, and cut the yarn. Six times.
So my Sunday was spent adding round 6 to a bunch of squares to bring them up to the right shape and size. I’m very good at round 6 now.
I’m hoping they were all from the beginning of this project when I was blindly following the pattern and not really understanding how it related to the yarn in my hands, rather than me just having several special moments when I actually knew what I was doing, but who knows!
It wouldn’t be a project of mine if it all went smoothly, would it?
P.S. just for funsies, does anyone want to guess how many skeins of yarn I have in my stash?
