I don't have much to report in the finished objects department for the first quarter of 08'.
Let's see, I knitted a cardi for me. The DROPS headband for my daughter, and the shadow cable vest for me. Not a lot to brag about. I have a goal next quarter to knit up at least twice as much (I hope).
I could have had another cardigan/jacket had I planned better. You see, I have almost 1,000 yards of this very nice pink dk wool. I'd searched over and over for what to do with it. Should I shawl it, vest it, hat and scarf it, tank top it ? I came across the Aran Cycling Jacket (you know the one). The yardage specifications were compatible. It was knitting up so pretty too.
One day while knitting at work, a co-worker commented to me; "Ha, I didn't even know they made pink zippers that long !". This comment got me to wondering whether any of the shops in my small town even carry pink zippers, especially a lengthy one. I went to Hancock and JoAnn Fabrics. They carried only 7 and 9 inchers. They suggested I look on the web, they called their shops in Snellville and Duluth. Nothing, no lengthy zipper. Ugggggh !!!
I probably could have found a long (26" I think) pink zipper somewhere outside of this town, but I was so tired of calling and looking that I just ripped her apart.
So, I guess this could be considered an official frog. Though I didn't mess up my knitting, I still had to frog her.Oh well, on to bigger and better projects !!!
