An Ugly Stitch...

Two days ago I started on the Baby Poonam by Berroco.



I completed the back and 1/4 of the front and then took all of it apart. You see, I really didn't care for the "textured pattern" they were using. I love the cables and all but, that pattern in my opinion is just UG--. I shouldn't say ugly, I'll just say it wasn't to my liking.


I didn't mind taking it apart. It's a quick little baby sweater, I'll survive. I haven't decided whether to do a straight stitch, more cables or another textured stitch.







Other Knitting...


I saw this cable combination in "The Yarn Girls' Guide to Knits for all Seasons...". This was applied to a cute little purse which I've added to my TO KNIT list. The purse is number 1,000,001. Anyway, I thought the combination would make a nice scarf so I minimized it a bit. Now I'm thinking of a smaller version of the purse. We'll see.

I'm a little excited as I've never had a raspberry scarf or purse.

sometimes its not right, right? I often find that the yarn plays a big part in getting the pattern right. The scarf will be great. Love the color.

It's really sad to force yourself to knit something that you are not totally in lve with. Good job riping it out! I love the cables!
