Attention, Attention!

On Friday, I started a new testknit for KnitByBit Designs:

I grabbed my ball of Drachenwolle “Limette” that still sat in my stash recovering from this desastrous project … and cast on happily.

I knit and knit and knit and knit and knit … until yesterday.

I had finished gusset and heel was ready to knit in the round again.

So I decided to try on the sock.

It was too long by half an inch and looked fit for a clown. Of course, I hadn’t noticed the too-long foot while knitting and knitting and knitting …

So today I ripped everything out and am ready to start again. Yaaaaay …..

And THEN …

THEN there is the baby cardigan (ravelry link) I am knitting for the first child of my oldest friend.

I started this a while ago and made a few changes to the pattern, with Anna’s help from my knitting group (knitting this in one piece, not in three single ones that would need to be sewn together).

So far, it worked beautifully …

…. That is, until yesterday.

Yesterday, the whole family met at my grandparents’, and I showed gran my progress:

Mark the super-professional "stretching"  tools!

Mark the super-professional “stretching”

And my gran looked at pattern and then at the cardigan and suddenly said: “Erm … Julia? The leaves are supposed on the OUTSIDE of the fronts … not close to the backpiece … ”


Can anybody please tell me what happened to my attention?!?


Lots of love to you all! Take care!
Julia 😀

    • Thank you very much for that compliment! It’s something I rarely hear … Usually I am not a Zen-person at.all. I’m more like the Hulk, to be honest. 😉

      In fact, I WAS very, very pissed when I realised that I had spent two days for naught … Because of this, I chose the Opal yarn, because that’s always great to knit with. 🙂

      THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE AWARD! OMG, I received one before, when I started blogging, but somehow never managed to answer that … I’ll answer your questions for sure (great ones, by the way!), it may be this weekend, but I’ll definitely do it. 🙂

      Have an awesome day!
