It was fun while it lasted but the Candy Dot Cowl is no more. My enthusiasm for rainbows took over for a few days. I wasn’t thinking about anything else. The rainbow on rainbow combo of Unicorn Fart yarn and a rainbow of beads really clouded my vision. That’s the only explanation I can come up with for this…
The dreaded Stockinette Curl. UGH! It’s not going away. There’s no fix for that. Blocking will not cure the curl. Not even for one millisecond. Damn you superwash!
If Ben Franklin had been a knitter he certainly would have said “…nothing can be said to be certain, except death, taxes and the stockinette curl.”
Total rookie move on my part. It’s not as though I didn’t know this would happen. I didn’t expect the results to be any different. Last night, I had a brief moment of clarity and knew there was only one way this could end. And so, it’s been frogged. It’s short life has been extinguished entirely. Gone.
The good news though, the real reason I love to knit, no harm has been done. I can start over again! I’ll get rainbow joy all over again. And this time, I’ll plan better! I’ve narrowed it down to two choices, start the cowl over again in Seed Stitch instead of Stockinette. I love seed stitch so not a bad option.
A beaded rainbow Hitchhiker. My last Hitchhiker modification was adding a K2tog, Yo eyelet row. Perhaps my next modification will be adding beads to the K2tog?
