For those of you not in the know, frogging a crochet project means pulling it apart and redoing it. Something I don’t mind doing, oddly enough. But swatching, that’s a different story. I don’t enjoy it. But I’m starting to realize that if I don’t swatch, I won’t get what I want. So I’m forcing myself to do it….
My mother in law, Judy, asked me what I wanted to have for Christmas. So I told her yarn with a project so I can make something for her! And she did it! (Along with a wonderful second gift… Too much!) She said she wanted a scarf made… So I researched, found some links for her to peruse and had her select a few that she liked. I chose one and started going to town.
Only I didn’t really love it. It actually looks better here than in real life. It just didn’t show off the beautiful subtlety of the yarn’s colors.
I can see from these photos that I need to start blocking my stuff before taking photos. Neither of them really show off the patterns as well as I’d like. Yay! Another project!
