That me, for some reason I thought i had mastered the art of crochet and how to ripple but today I am very much mistaken.
Yesterday i sat here most of the day
In the garden under my parasol, so i thought i would get on with the blanket i have to make for my friend by the 19th of June (yes less than 1 month). So off i went thinking i was all very clever
I have to say i was feeling pretty chuffed with myself, and even started on the 3rd colour.
So i popped it down for a bit and took pretty photos in the garden
I read my book for a couple hours and finally got it finished, ive been so close for weeks but been too tired when i went to bed, so promptly started the next in the series.
So today on the way to work/gym i got my crochet out and did another row, i noticed last night it wasnt quite wiggling properly
but i figured it would be fine, but when i showed Heather, she confirmed my fears that it was indeed wrong, and i needed to 'frog it' god i hate doing that :(
Shall i tell you the put that trips me up, its when you are at the end of a row and you have to get in the super tight C3 bit (ignore me if you have no idea what im talking about), so i have re printed the pattern, and saved a photo of what its supposed to look like
So with my tail between my legs i am off to rip out :( .
If you are wondering how Nellie the elephant is getting on! she looks like a elephant but i am really stuck with the stupid crochet ears :( hoping someone at knit night tomo and can her, coz she just needs her tail after that, which i also need help with ho hum!
Hope you have a lovely night xx
