so this is the beginning of the scary ass + complicated Fair Isle sweater i am making for my lady’s birthday. and so far it looks awesome. i mean, i can’t believe it’s actually turning out the way it is supposed to. but this is entirely because i restarted this project SEVEN (7) seven, five+2=**SEVEN** times. SEVEN TIMES! i almost threw it against the wall. but i didn’t. i just restarted it every time i realized i made a mistake in the pattern until i didn’t make a mistake in the pattern anymore. which further proves my theory that knitting requires 10% skill and 90% patience. of which i am clearly in abundance.

Filed under i blame all the restarts on the fact that i have been watching LOST, this is for squintz ravelry HYMagic take your eyes off your project for 2 seconds to get a glimpse of Jin's impossibly gorgeous face and BAM you just fucked up your row damn you Jin.
