Lavender cachet

After an inextricable (I tried!) tangle for reasons of utter stupidity the lavender afghan got ripped back to nothing this afternoon for the–I think third time. I don’t think that halfway time counts.

So that was fun.

Just. Let. Me. Get. Past. Two. Inches.

The originally planned bottom edging that I’d tossed after changing the stitch count (too wide the first time) and didn’t want to hassle with the math to work it back in is now back in the game and halfway finished.

And then, only then, did it at long last hit me: there is a lace pattern going into this project whose name includes the maiden name of the mom-to-be. THAT’S why my brain had been so insistent that it had to be in there.

I am marveling at just how slow I was on the uptake.

And typing that, I just pulled out the tape measure: 2.25″. Alright!!

Count that as a win! Frustrating to be sure…but a win in the end.

It’s so funny (and not always amusing) how some projects fight things like that.

I have an afghan that I have started for a grandchild of heart that has been started 4 or more times and still isn’t right!

Go you!

Is knitting lavender color as soothing as its essential oil?
