The further along I go with my legwarmers, the less happy I am with them. I was willing to overlook all the times I crossed cables the wrong way on one side of the lozenge pattern (the four stitch wide cable that crosses to the outside, I crossed six or seven times to the inside instead). I was even thinking I could overlook the huge (for me) ladders at the ends of my needles. But the cables aren’t lying flat on the left sides, and the stitches to the left of them are stretched out, and it’s too long, and I’m just about ready to rip it out. You know, now that I’ve only got three rows left to the lozenge pattern. I don’t know if it’s me, or the yarn, or the pattern, but I’m just not happy with it.
I’m not going to do that, though. I’m going to be good, and patient, and set it aside until I can take it to my mom’s and see what she thinks of it, and maybe by then I won’t think it looks that bad. But until then, I think I’m going to start working on the Shetland Shorty I have in my Ravelry queue.
I’ve enjoyed working with a fine yarn on a delicate looking pattern. It is a nice change from all the chunky yarn/large needle stuff that’s been so popular for so many years now. I just hope I decide to finish it.
