Welcome to my sixth post in the ABC meme. To see more of these please visit here!!
Today's post for the ABC meme is based on another ABC blog I read and thought was a good idea (sorry for stealing your idea!) I have to decide what to do with a project. When I first saw the pattern for the Raspberry Dreams stole I absolutely loved it!! I also thought I had the perfect yarn for it! This was my first attempt at knitting something in laceweight too. Well this yarn is slightly fluffy - it has a slight halo on it and I found it nearly imposible to knit with... But I cast on (for the first time) on October 4th 2010. And I was in trouble... I used bamboo needles and found the tips too blunt to work with the yarn.
After nearly nine months of working on this off and on I have decided the frustration is too much. I knit for pleasure (not pain). I shall set this yarn free!!
I think I will crochet something with it instead! I have this pattern and I bet this yarn would look lovely in this stole!! Some day I might conquer knitting with lace weight yarn. Maybe some day I will try this stole again using a nice fingering wieght yarn. But for now I am setting it and myself free!
