The Battle with the Yarn Continues

Happy Sunday!

Remember the yarn that didn't want to be socks?  I started knitting it into a Hitchhiker scarf, and it was very happy.  It knit beautifully. Until Friday night, when I was knitting on it while I was watching a movie on Netflix (Romancing The didn't really age well).  I noticed that I had dropped a couple of stitches a couple of rows back.  Unfortunately, it was in a place where I couldn't just use a crochet hook to fix the stitch.  So I tinked (unknit) in order to get back to the spot so I could fix it.  But stitches started dropping off the needles all over the place!  And I couldn't find my small crochet hook to catch them.

So I gave up for the night, with a resolve to fix it in the morning.  Except in the morning, I found that one of the dogs had pulled the scarf around and managed to pull more stitches off the needles.

The yarn is now in time out, until I decided whether it will be better to rip back a few (many?) rows to fix it, or to just rip the whole thing out and start over.  Right now, starting over is winning.

And how was your weekend?

  1. Sometimes yarn has to go in time out so it can learn its lesson and behave. Little Buddy got put in the '
    "make a better choice chair" at school a few weeks ago because he was throwing toys off the table at table time. It made me laugh.
