Have you ever...

...knit two right fronts of a cardigan and not noticed until the end! I did last night and I was so disheartened that bloke came in from the other room asking who had died by the scale of my sad musings. 



In order to 'get back on the horse' I made a face cloth out of some scraps before bed then used up all of the rest of the chunky cotton to make a loom brooch centred with a scrap-felted-jumper rose.


I felt better then because who doesn't need a flannel wash whilst wearing a brooch!!

You gotta smile. Jo xxxx

  1. No but as I get better at this knitting lark I'm sure it will happen. Yes I expect anyone would feel happier using a knitted flannel whilst wearing a handmade brooch x

  2. That made me smile. I think everyone needs a flannel wash whilst wearing a brooch, don't they?

  3. Well, I can only speak for myself, but I find it very important to accessorize before I wash my face. :)

  4. No, but I have knit the back of a cardi with k2, p2, rib, and then did the first one of the fronts and did k1,p1 rib ! Didn't notice till I'd finished. Didn't go back to that for a while !

  5. No. But only because I can't knit! Otherwise I am sure that I would have done such a thing at some point. I frequently crochet too many stitches and add things in the wrong way. You are not alone. You did a wonderful rescue with your two beautiful projects though! Hope you get the cardigan sorted. xx

  7. You're not alone here. I do have several things that were knitted in the wrong way. The rose looks gorgeous! The brooch is also amazing. Thanks to your patters and tutorials, I've 3 3D flowers, and my niece had leg warmers. Thanks!
    Warm hugs,

  8. I've never knitted 2 right fronts. But I have sewn 2 left sleeves for a blouse. I didn't notice until I was wearing it!

  9. I have done that more times than I care to admit, brush it off and carry on my friend.

  10. Nope....I have never knit even one sweater front...or back! So your efforts are stellar in my book, and your efforts to get back in a more positive frame of mind are exemplary to me, Jo! Well done, and thanks for sharing :) xx
