I consider myself a pretty good knitter at this point. Maybe not expert but certainly knowledgeable and ready to try anything.
This post is about how even great knitters make mistakes sometimes.
I decided a while ago that I wanted to knit something during the Winter 2014 Olympics in Sochi, just as I have during previous Winter Olympics. I actually selected a few projects, but this particular one involved a skein of gorgeous yarn with cashmere in it, from Cephalopod Yarns, Bugga in the colorway Flamboyant Cuttlefish.
I picked a pattern which was originally written for a thicker yarn, so I wanted to add something to this skein to make the cowl a bit wider and I found a red in the same yarn base. Away I went. I finished late last night and this morning artfully draped the project on a hanger to shoot photos in the morning light.
Um wait a minute. Let’s look at this again:
SHIT. Maybe no one will notice?
YEAH YEAH that’s it, better.
Man there’s nothing like warm labia on your neck. Nothing.
