Last december I bought a beautiful yarn to make a shawl for my mother in law. Well she spotted the yarn in shop and I offered to get it for her and make her the shawl.
It was suppose to be a Christmas present, but one thing led to another and I didn’t finish it on time. I’ve been “working” on it on and off since then, but next week, we are going to UK to visit her, so I decided to finish it and give it to her when we are there.
The problem is, i do not like how the shawl looks on top, and also the form of it. I wanted to make something quite wide but not too long ( triangle shaped).
As always I’m not following any pattern, just freestyle as I go…. And the last 2 days I spent obsessing about a way to fix the top and the shape, so it looks how I imagined it…. Easier said than done.
Im bit of a perfectionist when it comes to knitting and crocheting, and Im not easily satisfied with my results 😐. I showed the scarf to my friend, and she couldn’t really see what i was complaining about…..
Well last night I got so frustrated that I almost took it all apart, and started the shawl from scratch. But as with most mohair yarns, taking things apart takes longer, than the actual knitting (oh man, how I hate working with mohair), so this morning, I decided to continue with what I have…
Wish me luck, I will need it…..
