This is going to be a bit of a rant at myself. I for some reason cannot knit the Find my fade shawl.
I found it to be an interesting design, I have the suggested yarn in my stash and had a great colour combo idea and thought I would learn lots but still have safe sections (garter stitch).
But I started twice now, have ripped back portions of this second one and there are so many mistakes in it now that I will frog it again. 😦
I am just really frustrated with myself that I keep making mistakes. For some reason I cannot get the spine to work and if it is not that then my yarn overs and decreases are messed up. Sigh!
In a way I feel like I have knitted much more complicated things such as this other hedgehog fibres shawl. Which don’t get me wrong, it does have “maker marks” (mistakes) in it but I love it. But I just don’t love knitting this. Not right now. Maybe I have gotten a bit better at knitting and now have really high expectations of myself. Sigh.
Anyways I just can’t find my fade and am giving up for now. I don’t even want it sitting in a WIP progress bag, so I will frog it and re-purpose the yarn I think.
I am by no means saying it is a bad pattern, I just am not getting on with it at all. You should see some of the amazing makes! To get inspiration follow the hashtag #findyourfade on instagram! Some amazing makes, mine just won’t be one of them! haha!
