End Game failure

Yarn:      The Knitting Boutique's Potomac (baby camel!, merino, silk) in Graphite, 1 skein
 Pattern:  Tanis Gray's Clara Shawl
 Needles: US 6 (4.00 mm)

The luxury fiber was, well, luxurious, and the pattern was a pleasant knit. Where things fell apart was in blocking it - I was too lazy to pay attention to the points, and wound up with a sloppy block, with the result that I have yet to wear it. It sits there patiently, waiting for me to have the time to re-block it properly.


Given that we're already headed full tilt into the holiday season, I can't imagine when that's going to happen. But anything's possible!


  1. The yarn sounds sooo yummy!

    I completely understand about blocking. *groan* I have three finished projects, all in need of blocking. One is sitting, it will block itself in that bath. But it is a scarf I intended to share with Elder Munchkin. And Little Guy got the scarf I knit him last weekend. (Which actually didn't get blocked, so he is already wearing it. *laugh*)

    Good luck with the blocking. Or hey, maybe we could trade blocking work. *laugh* Might inspire us both to actually *do* it!

  2. I can't take my eyes off the bowl in the first (very nicely composed) photo!
