The result of Starting Point was that I set my Comfy Lace aside sure that I would be able to knit both, which was predicated on the belief that I would knit. I didn’t.
I am barely beginning Clue 3 of the Mystery Wrap.
Imagine another piece that looks just like this one. I have to imagine it as well because this is all I have gotten done. Clue 2 on one triangle.
Camp Loopy has a deadline. I have to have my item finished, photographed, and posted by June 30.
I have been making a lot of rookie mistakes lately. I don’t know how many times I started Starting Point nor can I remember how many times I had to tink back rows once it was started, but that led to the abysmally small amount of knitting shown above.
The same thing happened with Delilah, which I am knitting for Camp Loopy. I restarted it multiple times and only finally got going this past weekend.
I have it on 32″ circs and it is taking up every inch of cable, needles, and then some, so it’s long. I calculated how many rows I would have to knit every day to make the deadline and was feeling smug about how much time I had. Then today I noticed that after Row 8 of the Stocking Stitch and Eyelet portion of the pattern it said, and I quote, “Rows 1 to 8 form the st st and eyelet patt. Work rounds 1 to 8 three times more.” That’s 24 rows I did not include in my calculations.
It will be Delilah and me for the foreseeable future.
