Sometimes a knitter has to face facts. Not every project—no matter how well-advised, well-planned, or well-executed—is meant to be. My two skeins of Solitude Wool Border Leicester were well on their way to becoming Weld, but I made so many mistakes along the way (my own fault, not the pattern’s) that I quit while I was behind and cast on Dovetail instead.
I love it. It’s big and warm and beautiful. It was a joy to knit, and it was just the sort of knitting I’ve needed. I’m happy that I changed my mind, and I’ll knit Weld again, but this Dovetail was meant to be.
What do you do when your knitting is going wrong?
