An Unexpected Snag


Something is amiss, I haven’t finished a hat since Friday?!?  I should be flying through this one but for some reason, it’s tripping me up!  I couldn’t get the 2×2 ribbing to flow.  Without fail, I’d K2, P2, K1, P2…ooopps, go back and fix it.  K2, P2, K2, P1, K1, P1…oopps, fix that too.  P2, K2, P1, K2…damn, how did that happen again?  P2, K2, P2, K3…repeat!

Maybe it’s using black, I almost never do.  Maybe it’s using size 2 needles, I almost never do.  Maybe it’s the ribbing, clearly my hands wanted to do 1×1.  I’m alternating skeins to hid a second dye lot, maybe that’s it?

Whatever the case, I’m determined to finish it.  I truncated the ribbed and have moved on to the stockinette body!  It’s going better now.  Perhaps Leap Day is all I needed, a little extra time to work out the kinks!  I can’t wait for this one to be finished.  It’s gonna be good!
