Good GRIEF!!! I can’t tell you how up and down these past couple days have been. I won’t go into detail but suffice it to say it included some tears, some moments of depression, some misplaced anger and a bottle of $5.00 hooch. Just a bunch of problems that came together to produce the Perfect Storm of emotion. You can use you own imagination to fill in the blank. However, throught it all, I just keep repeating to myself my new found quote:
If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
— Regina Brett, syndicated columnist
It is so true!! When I step back and look at my problems, including the ones I have been having this week, I would definitely pull mine back out. The only problem is that sometimes it can take a while to remember to step back. So anyhoo, back to the crafting, because that IS what you are here for…
Drumroll please !!! Yes my friends…today we have KNITTING!!!
Here are my Anemoi Mittens
that I temporarily abandoned during Christmas crafting season. These too went through their fair share of roller coaster knitting. On the left you can see the first mitten I started. It had the purple as the main color and the green as the accent color. After knitting to the point you see above, I decided I did not like how muddled the design looked with my color choices. So I decided to reverse them and use the green as the main color. Ahhhh….so much better. You can really see the design a lot more.
I am still trying to figure out the actual lesson I learned so that the next two color knitting project is not just trial and error. Could it be that the dark color should always be the design? Brain is having a hard time processing info right now so if you know the answer don’t hesitate to shout it out in the comments. Mine is not doing to good after a glass or two of the hooch 🙂
Since this picture was taken, I have almost finished the left mitten and ripped out the one on the right. Oy Vay was that a MESS!!
Wish me luck!
