A Setback and a Step Forward

I frogged my shawl. By the time I got to the third row of beads it became painfully apparent that “fixing and fudging” the mistake stitch-count back into behavior was a losing battle. Sure, I was back at the right number of stitches (sort of), but the beads weren’t lining up correctly at all.

Don’t worry, though. It’s re-cast on and I’m planning to dive into work on it again soon. I just need the sudden whirlwind of other projects to die down for a bit. A lot of writing related projects have cropped up, leaving me with little or no recreational fiber time.

This I am hoping to combat during the month of April by doing my own version of the Project 365 photography blogs.

To be perfectly honest, photography isn’t my thing. I would much rather experience something in person then watch it through the lens of my camera. Really, the only things I photograph are yarn, fiber, and their related projects.

So, my idea is to focus in on photographing yarn for the month of April. It’ll give me a chance to play with new yarn “poses,” colors, backdrops, settings, and all that good stuff. I’ll be posting the pictures on here, although I haven’t yet decided if I should post them daily, or post a week’s worth at a time.

    Frogging is painful–especially when you’ve got as far as you had on your shawl. But worse still is to continue on in denial and then end up with a garment you never wear because it “looks funny!”
