This is by far my biggest knitting project yet. The first time I used these stitch patterns and got ‘creative’ with colors and texture.
It started out as an Applejack scarf.
Since then it has taken on a life of its own and started growing exceptionally fast. Now it’s mutated into a cross between a blanket and a scarf, which I’ve affectionately dubbed a scarfie for my boyfriend.
I have 8 rows left to knit on the yellow lining. And then I almost dropped a stitch without realizing.
Let me repeat that: I almost dropped a stitch without realizing.
To some of you this may mean very little. Perhaps you are skilled enough to fix this without losing your mind. Perhaps you don’t know how significant a dropped stitch is.
I almost cried.
I’m super thankful I’ve grown enough in the last half a year to know how to fix a dropped stitch when caught in time by using a crochet needle. If I hadn’t, I don’t even know what I would have done with the approximate 1,000 yards of yarn that went into this thing.
